26. Guilty (Speaking Up and Facing Responsibility)

Kevin, Amy, Farah and David are busy rehearsing for a play. When Ms. Paul opens a prop chest nearby a smoke bomb explodes, which gets her very upset. Who did this? She wants to know, but no one admits to the prank. Her best guess is it was Kevin. In the smoke Kevin goes into the dream world of Nilus the Sandman. His dream takes him into a George Orwell-style place where our hero finds that he is guilty for a crime he didn't commit. In a society that is too quick to judge on looks, Kevin is being taken advantage. If he doesn't vindicate himself he will be stuck in an eternal world of chaos and disarray. Coming out of the dream, Kevin realizes he knows he has to speak up for himself and that Farah needs to do what's right, to tell Ms. Paul she was responsible. 05/08DE PI 30 min.
