  • An animation aimed at teenagers with severe learning difficulties. Adam (a teenage boy with sever learning difficulties) comes in after a game of football. A couple of his friends are sitting on a sofa. He greets them and reaches to take a corn chip from for a bowl on the coffee table. His hands are covered in mud from his football game. His friends look at him in disgust. Adam continues to eat the chips. A question mark appears. The video replays. As he picks up a corn chip during the replay, a Widgit 'stop' symbol appears. He notices the dirt on his hands and goes to the bathroom and gives them a good scrub at the sink until they are thoroughly clean.
