This film shows post wedding events and family scenes outside a house in (Shanghai) China.


This film opens with family scenes of a man in formal wedding attire playing with a young girl in a garden. This is followed by a street scene of post wedding events where a man and woman write 'Just Wed' on the spare tyre cover on the back of the wedding couple's car. The cover also reads: 'Joffre Garage TEL 36446' (Garage may be in Shanghai?) flanked by Chinese characters. As the newlyweds leave, friends and family throw confetti over them in the street.

The next part of the film shows damaged and fragmented single frames of the couple boarding a boat or ship, a dog in a garden and a courtyard below an apartment building (?).
