Synopsis: A 14-year-old girl with a scythe, cutting circles around a tractor equipped with a mowing machine! Far-fetched? Today - perhaps. Tomorrow - the use of simple hand tools will make increasing sense in direct proportion to the rising costs, economic and otherwise, of operating oil-dependent machinery. Long live the power of human bodies!

There is no trick photography in this video; it is a genuine documentary of the efficiency of this ecological tool, the scythe.
