Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

This provocative, experimental film is based on an off-Broadway play. It is set during a child's recess at school; the things that happen there parallel the experiences, emotions, and events that the characters will all eventually experience throughout their lives. At first, the characters act against a backdrop of pure white, but gradually as the characters change and grow, the background becomes more colorful, more complex. Throughout the film, none of the characters are able to touch each other, but for a gentle tap on the forehead.
