Between the wedding of Cynfelyn Edwards of Tre'r-ddôl at a chapel near Rhydlewis, Cardigan, and footage of Welsh farmers in Scotland for a sale of Welsh Black Cattle, is featured a home-made band. Siblings Rowland and Kathryn Davies, of 'Dolclettwr' farm, Taliesin, sing along with gusto to music they are producing using empty bottles and old plastic tubs they have set up outside.

The film-maker, Gwen Davies of 'Dolclettwr', passed her camera into someone else's hands at the wedding as she is seen there wearing a green dress. Her daughter wears a purple dress with white flower and her son a suit. Husband John is the best man. The 'Dolclettwr' children are also seen on horseback, and a new calf is admired in the farmyard. Relatives are visited at 'Bwlch-y-ddwyallt', Tal-y-bont, where there is a Land Rover, and at home, a dilapidated car is pulled along by a tractor.
