Views of Rome filmed by Ernest Shippam in 1931, followed by portraits of a nun - Sister Joachim in a chapel garden walking with several children and a younger man.
Motorcars drive in front of St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City. A fountain, horse and trap and pedestrian visitors are all seen. Panoramic views of Rome follow. A ruined bridge precedes scenes from within a Roman amphitheatre (Colosseum?). The camera pans around the arches. Cars drive along a coastal road.
Several children and a group of adults gather in a street to hear a brass band playing. A group of men with bicycles join them. A nun (Margaret Shippam / Sister Joachim) is seen walking with children in a chapel garden, later posing for portraits with a younger man.
