Before their vacation begins, a couple pose for a formal portrait on a sun-drenched beach. As palm trees transform themselves into studies from the Sistine Chapel, a male model of Michelangelo's Libyan Sibyl comes alive from the base of several young palms and begins to draw the landscape towards them. He has been carefully arranging the curtain to reveal the true beauty of their tropical paradise.

The beach is Pigeon Point, Tobago.
