VS of the young children dressed in their finery, two flower girls sprinkle the path to the church with flower petals. The camera follows the crowd as they march through the town and out to a church that seems to be set further back in the hills. The priest wears a dark cassock and an elaborate hat. MCU of a group of elderly men from the village talking and smoking. LS of three young boys running about on a farm.
