A teenage girl is on her period. The animation follows her through the course of the day. She doesn't change her sanitary pads regularly and ends up soiling her clothes and furniture she sits on. The video replays showing her paying attention to personal hygiene in relation to her period. The video uses Widgit symbols to highlight appropriate and inappropriate activity. The Widgit symbols can be used as pause points by teachers to highlight key issues for discussion.
