A look into a time gone by in Indonesia. A 1977 filmed visit with a Prince of Bali, and his feudal court of Chokorda Agung in Ubud, a principality of Bali, by Asian arts expert Faubion Bowers, who lived there in the late 40s. The visit includes the palace grounds, a skit composed by the Prince, and a popular Balinese dance (Truna Jaya, in which a teenage girl dances the part of a young man.) Also: an interview with Rudolph Bonnet, an elderly Dutch painter long resident in Bali and sometimes referred to as "the last of the Gauguins." Bonnet escorts Bowers on a tour of an art museum dedicated to Balinese art.
