Week 1- Pages 1- 40 of Life After by Sarah Darer Littman
This storyboard does not have a description.
Dani's mother explains where she is going
"I'm going to the soup kitchen at Beit Jabad to get food"
Dani's father denies the idea of receiving food from the food bank; family is frightened by the loud voice father projected
"We will not take charity. I would rather starve"
The only thing left in Dani's life is her boyfriend Roberto
"I just wish everything could go back to normal Roberto"
Dani's mother explains that she is going to get some food from the soup kitchen at Beit Jabad because as the family is running low on money they can't afford to buy food but the family is in need.
Being as stubborn as he is, Dani's father is not in approval of the idea about receiving food from the soup kitchen. As he raises his voice, Dani's little sister, who does not like when her papa yells, hides behind Dani frantically. Dani and her sister wish they could make the decision of wether they want to go into starvation or not rather then their father making the choice for them.
I chose this scene because as Dani's life is slowly falling apart she doesn't have much to turn to except to her boyfriend Roberto. As she sits with him in the park she explains the terrible incidents about her papa at home, and this shows that her family is struggling and I feel that this plays a significant role in the story because it shows how strong the character of Dani really is.
