Summary

The film opens on the sign for the "Old Lodge", a gabled house in a leafy street. A small child and her parents sit in the garden. The girl plays on a rocking horse, before a basin is filled with water for her to play in. Her father takes a trug and a book to another part of the garden and checks his plants. The girl and the mother play with dolls before the girl looks on as her mother makes tea.
