The nest contains eggs which are then filmed hatching. There is small amount of footage of the young birds. There are a variety of street scenes in and around Montreal with a focus on the large tulip garden donated by the Dutch government. There is footage of a convocation and/or royal visit in Montreal. The second half of the film is focused on the Port of Montreal. Many boats are pictured in frame with a focus on R.M.S. Nascopie, which is then filmed leaving port and heading up the St. Lawrence.
