Camera rushing through house stops in bedroom to watch woman. She sits on edge of bed, moving twitchily. Woman moving in confined white space; camera is sometimes on its side, sometimes upside down, etc. Space becomes smaller and she leaps out. Woman now in long red dress, the bottom of which is fixed to the floor. Sound of woman singing. Woman with hair spread our like sun rays. Credits with action continuing intermittently.
