Beuys Boys sitting on high branches of an oak tree in the woods, then destroying and breaking young oak trees up into little pieces. At length the young warrior comes to rest, transported on a Native American sledge along a Tuscan country track.

First we see the boys on an oak tree in an idyllic setting.
Then we see them destroying little oak trees as a form of rebellion against the hypocrisy of their fathers. Exasperated by the stultifyingly static social climate in which they life, they react by breaking the oak trees up into little pieces.

Finally the young warrior comes to rest, transported on a Native American sledge along a Tuscan country track.
