Storyboard Text

  • Outside the Hut
  • I feel like dying.. i havent ate anything in 3 days and when i do it does nothing to my hunger... It feels like my bowels are being torn from the inside out!
  • Woah man! You look terrible, maybe you should go in and see the doctor.
  • Thats crazy man.. i wish you the best of luck with that!
  • Inside the Hut
  • There's blood in my feces, i have severe abdominal pain and cramps.. and i also have these weird sores around my feet.
  • Ahh you got the hookworm, its probably from that latrine job you did. Nasty fool you shoulda worn shoes, dont ya know parasitic worms are easy to catch in these tropical places?
  • So what exactly are your symptoms?
  • Inside the Hut
  • Haha! Plenty of those Johnny, you can become Anemic especially poor unhealthy people like you. You can also obtain ascites or loss of protien that causes buildup of fluid in the abdomen!
  • I feel like i have all those now! Doc i need medication right now, what will my insurance cover?
  • Well how can i be treated Doc? and also is there any health risks with these worms?
  • John being a poor caste member in society means he gets little to no food a day. He lacks proper sanitation to clean and has no money to buy everyday things. Lets see what the the doctor can diagnose John with.
  • Inside the Hut
  • Well John your insurance covers nothing and you will need to take these worm killing pills for a week to be sure the worms are dead. Your total will be $100
  • Poor John found out he has the Hook worm infection. If John was anymore educated he would know that wearing shoes while standing in crap is not a good thing. Ascaris type worms are a highly infectious problem in Johns village. John has likely endured this problem longer than hes told people.
  • Outside the hut
  • Why is John slumped up on the hut like that?
  • He looks dead, probably from that disgusting Hookworm infection! We need better sanitaqtion out here!
  • John has now discovered he suffers from severe Anemia and has carried these worms for almost a year! Likely if the John is dewormed his health will fail from the ravaged state of his body.
  • John lacks the proper healthcare to be properly cured of this infection. Im afraid his health will turn for the worse.
  • Then I'm afraid there is nothing more i can do for you until you get that money.
  • I don't have that much...
  • John suffered a painful Anemic death, he should of bought the healthcare. The End
  • Nahh.. He shoulda just bought my healthcare and he would be alive and not dead, Oh well jokes on him!
