The film then cuts to a surrealistic shot of a boy, sitting in a m ... ...

Texas officials in Galveston have warned about a new drug that was found in the possession of school children.
During the week, school staff caught six eighth-grade girls with the new drug, a liquid form of meth.
News reports said the children had been found acting strange, with small tin foil packs that contained drug-laced pieces of paper, which were dissolved on the tongue.
They were all taken to hospital where they recovered. The hospital has since released the girls to their parents.
The Galveston County Sheriff, Henry Trochesset, said the drug had been sent to a lab, where it was found to be so potent it could be absorbed through the skin.
He said the girls may be charged with being in possession of the drug after it is ascertained where they purchased it.
