Following this is a sequence of shots of a four children playing in a garden. One of then rides a tricycle, one of them shoots a toy gun at the camera, while another toddler tries to stand up and walks about holding her teddy. They move out to the front garden and play with the gun and ride on scooters. The young girl starts to cry and the older girl gives her a hug.
