A discussional film on the problem of damage to school property. Three boys start out on a prank, but it “snowballs” far beyond their original intentions. The film opens showing the three waiting to see the principal. The thoughts of each’ of the boys are brought out. The instigator and his friend had planned to place a “harmless stinkbomb” in the wastebasket of one of their teachers. The other boy just happened by and was urged to participate in the act. The “bomb,” however, was larger than they originally planned and when it exploded, it got out of control, starting a fire in the classroom. Any of the three boys could have stopped the act before it was done, but because of the fear of being “chicken” none of them did.
