A classroom window has been broken for two weeks and the children cannot concentrate because the rain is getting in. The culprit is not allowed to return to class until he mends the window, so he sets out to resolve the situation and finds he has to walk a pane of glass across the countryside through a howling gale.

Our grateful thanks to Mohammad Ali Talebi for helping us to make this screening possible. @mohammadalitalebii
