Storyboard Text

  • Please help us! We have little money, but Coyotito will die if he doesn't get help.
  • No money, no help!
  • Just as a normal morning began, Juana and Kuna were eating breakfast when they notice a scorpion over Coyotitos bed. As they get up to retrieve the scorpion, Coyotito shakes the rope of the hanging box above his bed, the scorpion falls, lands on his shoulder, and stings him with its poison.
  • Kuana and Juna rush to the doctor with Coyotito and is told to wait while the assistant goes and talks to the doctor to negotiate the price. The doctor rejects the eight pearls that Kuna and Juana only have to offer.
  • To get the money in order to pay treatment for Coyotito, Juana and Kino create a plan to go diving for a pearl big enough in value to persuade the doctor to treat the poison
  • Kino dives in the ocean in search of the biggest clam. After bringing back the biggest he could find, Juana opens the clam to reveal the biggest pearl either of them has ever seen.
  • As news spread of Juana and Kunos discovery throughout the town, the doctor finally came to their home to treat Coyotito. Knowing the Doctors intentions of money, he brushes off the thought and let's the doctor in. The doctor gives Coyotito the medicine, saying he will come back in an hour to check up on him.
  • Once the doctor leaves, Kuno realizes that he has been careless about guarding the pearl. He then digs a hole in the corner of their home to put the pearl in. When the doctor comes back, he questions where the pearl is. Kuno gets more paranoid, digs it up, and reburies it under their bed.
