It's the end of summer vacation and the students can’t wait to get back to their first day at school. There are two students, Francine and Paul, who are the best of friend. Francine has boisterous personality and Paul, tends to follow the wise words of his grandmother. Belinda is a new student who is nervous about starting at a new school, and wasn’t sure if she would fit in. Francine, the instigator of the duo, choose to pick on Belinda for being different. Belinda had a miserable first day. That evening, Paul felt guilty for bullying Belinda and he recalls his grandmother’s words: “You should be nice to all the other kids at school”. The next day, Paul decides to right his wrong and to stand up to Francine. Francine told Paul to choose between her and Belinda. Paul told Francine that he would like to be friends with both of them.
