Mr Voss visits his sister at her house, Malmsmead. In the gardens are beehives, vegetable plots and flower beds. Children play on the lawns with a dog as women look on. The family pose together for the camera, and Voss films a plane flying overhead. The film ends with footage of young children at a schools sports day, doing the egg and spoon race before performing a dance for their audience.
