A series of close ups of the school bell is followed by students rushing fast-motion out of the building through an open window. Other students are seen leaving school more slowly through the front of the building. Students leave campus on foot, in car, and by bus. A movie theater on Jefferson Boulevard, The Vogue, can be seen in the background. The film ends with students leaving through a darkened hallway and a sunset over the neighborhood.
