Storyboard Text

  • John Oakhurst, Mother Shipton, The Duchess, and Uncle Billy were all kicked out of Poker Flat for leading lives that were frowned upon by society. They are no longer welcome, and band together as outcasts.
  • The group uses card games and music to get through the long lasting snow storm. The girls bond as the snow continuously falls. Not surprising is it that uncle Billy never returns. Food provisions grow sparse.
  • Mother Shipton and Uncle Billy are angry, while The Duchess is very upset. Together they head towards the mountains, and make their way to the next town over.
  • The band of outcasts stops for the evening. As John is surveying his recumbent and slightly intoxicated counterparts, two more people appear out of the woods. It is John's old acquaintance Tom, and his innocent lover, Piney. Tom tells John that he has a cabin and previsions nearby .
  • They all stay in the shack like cabin. The next morning, Tom awakens before the rest, and looks out to find the cabin snowed in, and the mules, along with Uncle Billy gone. The snow continues to fall, as the rest of the group wakes up. John tells them that Uncle Billy went to get more provisions.
  • For the next ten days the band of outcasts are snowed in the innocents cabin. They cannot leave and are running short on provisions
