Synopsis

A newly-wed couple is showered with lots of similar wedding presents from their relations and they are hard put to hide their embarrassment. Then five of their uncles appear together. They are clutching boxes which look exactly the same so they are not exactly welcomed with great enthusiasm. It turns out, however, that the boxes contain a whole range of fabrics in all sorts of colours and designs; the couple are ecstatic. This is a promotional film for the textil Miltex company.
