Scenes of the Emberton family on holiday in Devon, at home at a children's Christmas party and a few years later playing in the garden.


In Sidmouth(?), Devon the family are seen staying at a seaside hotel, on the beach and playing tennis. At home a children's Christmas party shows the two young daughters Jocelyn and Gillian with relatives and other children of a similar age eating party food. This is followed by scenes of the two daughters (now a few years older than at the start of the film) in the garden playing, both riding bicycles, then picking flowers with their mother Kathleen Emberton. Final shots in black and white are of tennis being played, possibly also filmed on the same holiday in Sidmouth seen at the start of the film.
