Description:Step by step, Anders Sveen and Peder Settem, of Surnadal in the district of Nordmøre, demonstrate how tar was distilled from pine wood in the old days. The elaborate and time-consuming process was temporarily revived during the German occupation, but two decades later, at the time of this film's production, it was just about to die out for good.
