Music plays throughout. A boy sits at a desk, drawing a bird with a pen. He pushes the drawing underneath his notebooks as his father enters the room. The man checks through the boy's work. Finding the boy's drawing, he tears up the paper. At breakfast, his father tells him off but his mother is supportive, giving him kind words. The camera pans across an empty schoolroom. The teacher lays Biology exam papers on the desks and instructs the children to turn them over and start the exam, which lasts an hour. The boy imagines his mother smiling at him as time passes, until 20 minutes are left. The boy imagines his father shouting at him while he draws a lifelike portrait of him. With five minutes until the exam finishes, the boy's teacher looks up to find he has left the classroom through the window.
