The video is animated in the style of a pop-up book. Elements of each scene pop up from the bottom of the screen.
The animation begins with a winter landscape at night. There are snow-covered trees and hills and a curved stone bridge.
Two deer, a buck and a doe, pop up on the bridge. The bridge and trees illuminate with strings of white lights.
A wooden sign with the word “Lislehurst” pops up.
The scene changes to more snow-covered trees and hills.
A stone pillar with a plaque reading "Lislehurst" pops up, followed by the buck and doe from the bridge.
A large stone house (Lislehurst) pops up. The windows of the house glow with golden light.
The edges of the roof, door and windows illuminate with strings of white lights.
Animated snow begins to fall.
The house scene dissolves into a dark navy screen.
White text over a dark blue background appears at the end of the video. The text reads “Happy Holidays from the University of Toronto Mississauga.”
White text reading "Animation by QCVisual Studios" appears.
The screen fades to black and the video ends.
