School girls thump their fingers on school desks or lay their hands flat on top of the table, then cover their mouths with their open hands. The menacing sound of the thumping is disrupted by the helpless gesture of the open hands, so that the childish action seems to be a direct translation of the feeling transmitted in the documentation of the natural phenomena of summer lightnings, which are superimposed to the video in irregular intervals.
