More people pop into the scene behind the couple who are walking away. The couple then appear behind the popped people and walk past them. The people watch them walk away. The couple are then shown walking together along another country path. The same people as before suddenly appear beside them to give them gifts (?) as well as obstructing their path. The next shot is blurry and show the couple sitting on the grass as the people (who have become transparent) run around them. Shot of the couple walking back up the path as the transparent people run past and round them. Shoft of the couple lying on the grass again.
