Multicultural aspects of Scotland, in the eyes of the two Japanese producers of Japan Desk Scotland, are examined in this documentary, in which a Scottish ceilidh is contrasted with the Japanese cultural events they have organised in Glasgow for years as a social inclusion project, with the following questions:
What is inclusion?
What does it mean to share other cultures?
Who are strangers?
