Noodle is floating along peacefully in the sunshine on her floating island. Suddenly the peaceful calm is shattered when two attack helicopters appear and start shooting at her with machine guns. Noodle takes refuge in the windmill. The helicopters fire at the windmill and damage it. Later Noodle comes out of the windmill to look around, and sees that the once beautiful sky has turned completely cloudy and dark, but the helicopters see her and attack again, and she is forced back inside the windmill. eventualy the island is so damaged that it cannot float anymore and starts to fall to the earth. It crashes on the ground and one of the helicopters drops a bomb on it.
