We are in Oxford, England. The film opens with Oxford University, the oldest university in the English-speaking world.

We see the imposing building of New College as well as a group gathered in front of it. The filmmaker shows us views from the building complex and with a close up shot, we see the university’s coat of arms which reads in Latin "Dominus Illuminatio Mea" (The Lord is my light), surrounded by three golden crowns while a little above focuses on the Christ's College’s coat of arms which is a constituent college of the University of Cambridge.

Afterwards, we see the bridge, known as the Oxford’s Bridge Of Sighs but is officially called Hertford Bridge as it connects two parts of Hertford College over New College Lane. The lens focuses on New College Lane, a historic street in central Oxford, named after New College, one of Oxford's oldest colleges.

The filmmaker focuses on Oriel College which is the Joint School of Philosophy and Theology. Next, we see the Bronze statue of William Herbert Earl of Pembroke in the Bodleian library square courtyard as the camera shows us the rooms of each department with people are walking around.

The film closes with the Radcliffe Camera (colloquially known as the "Rad Cam" or "The Camera"; from Latin camera, meaning 'room') is a building of Oxford University, designed by James Gibbs in neo-classical style and built in 1737–49 to house the Radcliffe Science Library.
