Daniel is running with his friend Colin to get to school on time. As they race along, his nose starts bleeding. The teacher tells the class that there will be a terrorist alert drill today, maybe during this afternoon's rehearsal for the end of year show. Back in the infirmary, Daniel discovers Marthe, trying on her costume. He looks at her, she surprises him. She tells the whole class. When the alarm goes off for the exercise, he has to face his fear and his desire for Marthe.
