Johnny, a freckle-faced rascal, hides in a landscape of dead trees in front of three teenage brats. He watches as they strip off their clothes to cool down a little in the nearby rivulet. But he is quickly discovered. The girls catch the terrified boy, tear his clothes off, tie him to one of the withered trees and perform a wild witch dance around their victim. When they retire to deliberate on how to proceed forward, fate beats them to it.
