The whole roll consists of several shots from different angles of children from various nationalities at play in a room of the United Nations school on First Avenue in Queens Island, New York, of children playing with a football balloon and a regular one, pitching them to someone else with the others trying to catch them, of a group of girls at play with red marbles in a kind of wired bowl, of children walking on their hands with others bolding their feet, of children jumping over others kneeling on the floor. Several shots from different angles of children outside posing for camera, of three girls and a boy sitting on chairs around a table playing with kitchen instruments, one of them making a salad with grass and the others preparing something else with tiny red fruits, of other children running out of school door and posing for camera, of them making a children dance around the camera, of children touching each other, of four of them sitting in the grass playing hands game in synchronization.
