During the summer holiday season, people who live inland often flock en-masse to the coast. They try to make up for all the times during the past year when they should have relaxed. Although the holiday home is located far from any hustle or bustle, the events that take place around it cannot be described as boring. This film is an artist’s commentary on observed events taking place on or near the terrace of this holiday home. These seemingly insignificant, scandal-free events serve to create and convey the rich atmosphere that makes taking a summer holiday so attractive, appealing and fascinating.
