Newlyweds, Carl and Ellie dream of their future at a picnic. Walking out into the countryside, Karl and Ellie spread a picnic on the grass and dream of a family. Ellie looks up and sees clouds. Of course, their romantic dreams are never fulfilled. They grow old and Ellie dies; Carl becomes a recluse.
