Following that, some children are playing tricycle together, they looks very happy, one of them is sitting on the tricycle with hand held high, and other children are pushing the tricycle. In this frame, these children is playing in a clean and tranquil park. Then, the frame changed, we can see a little lovely girl stand besides a building, the building is big and tall, and it is very clean and white.
