Film opens showing numerous U.S. Army Air Forces warplanes and bombing. Next, crowds are seen jamming Times Square in Manhattan, New York City, celebrating victory over Japan in World War 2. (It is premature, being one day earlier than the actual end of the war on 15 August, 1945.) A facsimile of the Statue of Liberty has been set up in the square. Moving lights on Times Building annouce Japanese surrender. Some wave American flags. Closeup of the Statue of Liberty facsimile. A woman dances the Lindy Hop with a Sailor, as others (including many servicemen in uniform) watch.
