A house appears in the upper left corner. To the right of the house is a crouched figure that seems to be focusing on something in the ground. In the lower right corner, a figure holds its hand near its face while its hair is tucked behind its proper left ear. Above this figure is a smaller figure who shields its face behind its arm. To the left is an open field that contains a tree, upon which a bird rests. A fence borders the field. In the center foreground is a male figure. To the left of him is a female figure standing in a doorway.
