Children's birthday parties can be chaotic events, but at Nikil Kapur's 6th birthday in Heysham in Lancashire, all seems to be going smoothly. A garden full of kids is organised into playing musical chairs, and everyone cheerfully joins in blowing out the candles on the cake. The film ends with the Kapur brothers playing in the river Lune at Kirkby Lonsdale, and a family trip to Westminster.
