A book is lying on a table. The pages of a book get ripped out by a pair of hands, the pages get teared up and are thrown on the table. Meanwhile, on the opposite side of the table another pair of hands is picking up the pages one by one, smoothing them out and putting them on a pile.The video closes with the second pair of hands placing back the pile of torn pages between the book’s original covers.
