Annotation: Dramatized incidents with individual children underscore important rules to remember when meeting strangers, such as taking the same route home from school and not hitchhiking.
Abstract: The rules include not accepting gifts or rides from strangers noting down the license number when a stranger offers a ride, not hitchhiking, taking the same route home from school every day, and avoiding shortcuts. The film further emphasizes that a child should never go with strangers or play in lonely places or abandoned areas. On Halloween, children should avoid going trick or treating alone and should stay in their own neighborhood. When going door to door, they should try to go with a friend and should not go into the home. They should also try to sit with friends their own age in movie theaters. Major points are reviewed at the close of the film.
