Plot

It's the first day of school in Ireland for Joseph, an African lad of about ten or 12. The teacher introduces him to the class, he sits, and as the day progresses he remembers moments of his schooling back home. Two of the boys in class start to tease and pick on him; he's stoic, ignoring them at first. He's defended by one of the girls in class. Recess approaches and one of the lads tells Joseph to watch out. How will the confrontation play out?
