Storyboard Text

  • There once was a knight who was so overcome with lust that he robbed a young maiden of her virginity.
  • The king and queen were very disappointed in the knight.  The king would have the knight beheaded, but the queen allowed the knight a year and a day to seek out that which women most desire.
  • On the last day of his search, and after hearing many different answers, he came across a glade of dancing women.  When he approached, they all vanished, only an old woman remaining.  She told him that she would give him his answer if he gave her anything she wanted.
  • When he came back to the queen's court, he gave the answer that women want power and control in relationships.
  • Because his response was correct, his life was spared, and the old woman asked to marry him.  He was not thrilled.
  • The old woman lectured the knight about happiness.  She then asked him if he wanted her to be old and faithful or young and unfaithful.  After thinking, he told her to choose, and she turned into a young woman, promising to always be faithful.  The End.
