Frieda seems to have a spark in her eye as she heads off to the local swimming pool. She meets with friend Cecil, but their pleasure is interrupted by some snoops from the croquet club (to which Cec belongs). Cecil is retired, and is enjoying the twilight of his life. His only worry is his planned yacht trip to New Zealand - an ambition that must be fulfilled - and his growing infatuation with Frieda.
This is a leisurely film that captures the ambience of a generation who have plenty of time to enjoy themselves. It's a genteel and gracious world, yet at the local croquet club, the center of Cec's social activities, pettiness and snobbishness filter through the group. The dreamed of yacht trip offers an escape.
