After being placed in an isolation unit. Sion tries to taunt Sam through sending him offensive drawing. However he is fought back with Sam sending correcting his errors.
While trying to open a box that keeps their phones, Sam scolds Sion - now covered in paint - and encourages him to finish the essay so they can leave. After opening the box and grabbing his phone and pockets Sam’s. While taunting Sam, He fails to notice that he’s dropped Sam’s phone on his desk.
Sion curiously approaches Sam. But, for every step he makes, she backs up one and drops the box. The sound of a bell starts to ring, drowning most sounds.
They both turn on their phones, receiving very different reactions. Sam’s are a mixed bag of people's reactions and one says to just say it's a joke. Sion’s are mainly from his friends that condone his action, however he gets scolded by friend Joe.
An argument breaks out between them as Sion about why their friendship had broken apart.
Sam receives a voice message from his mother. Stating that she warned her that it was too soon and maybe she should consider waiting until leaving school for university. Sion overhears this message and gets confused after Sam declares “I just wanted to be myself”.
The two have gotten into a fight after Sion blocks Sam from leaving the classroom.
Sitting away from Sam, Sion watches a video, sent by Joe, about trans issues as a way to educate himself and get an understanding on what Sam might be going though.
Sion struggles to reconnect with Sam and apologise for his actions. But the two make up after Sion writes an apology letter.
Sam looks down at Sion as he lays on the paint splattered floor. The sound of a ringing bell starts to die down as chairs and stampeding feet can be heard.
The day ends and they begin to pack up, Sion opens the door and offers to walk Sam home. Sam smiles for the first time since the incident started.
