Film begins with a stretcher being loaded into an ambulance by the Bethesda/Chevy Chase Rescue Squad and Red Cross workers. The bulk of the film consists of scenes of students congregating on and around American University’s campus including signs for a variety of activities such as a memorial service and smoke-in and images of the MPD response including tear gas canisters spewing gas and students washing out each others eyes. Also featured is footage of a formal gathering in the amphitheater with AU President George Williams, various campus administrators, and Professor Adbul Said. Though the film includes interviews with students, the soundtrack is missing so the interviews cannot be heard.
