The building of the Berlin Wall has just begun along a long strip of land. A map of West Berlin is shown. A lady, an older lady and young child wave to someone on the other side of the short wall. A man in suspenders looks out his window. A man on one side of the wall lights a flare and smoke billows over the wall and barbed wire. People toss items out of a window. Several people hold a parachute open and catch a lady as she jumps out a window. something is lowered out a window to a woman who holds flowers and cries. The woman and several other people wave back up to the window where an elderly couple watches and waves back.
