Storyboard Text

  • After being unknowingly raped by the American GI, Elsa gives birth to a baby boy. She names him Jimmy, and at that moment decides to devote her entire being to raise him. He is the best thing that had ever happened to her.
  • Wooow he is so beautifuuuuul! The product of the American GI and my love!
  • Jimmy, hold on! I'm coming home! I miss you!
  • During her workday as a maid for the Madame, Elsa is given permission to run home to check up on Jimmy. She spends her whole time devoted to raising Jimmy.
  • When Elsa arrives home, she finds Jimmy crawling on the floor dirty, playing with dogs. Her family tries to raise Jimmy as an Inuit child, while she had been trying so hard to raise him as a white child.
  • Heh Heh!
  • She seems mad...
  • Oh my... WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?!?!
  • Elsa has taken Jimmy to live with her Uncle Ian, so that he could experience a more Inuit way of life. When she hears that Jimmy might be taken away from her so he can go to school, they flee into the tundra. At night they take refuge in an igloo.
  • “Elsa and Ian laughed for a long time to see Jimmy so enchanted by nothing more really than the ordinary life of the old days.” (page 94)
  • Amaaaaazing!
  • Elsa and Jimmy move back to Fort Chimo for the sake of Jimmy's health. She continues to cater to Jimmy's demands.
  • “Now that Jimmy lived entirely among white children and was invited to meals with one or another of them, he wanted, just as they did, to eat nothing but hamburger.” (page 108)
  • Why can't we eat hamburger every day?!?!
  • After living in the whites' culture, Jimmy begins to identify himself as exclusively white, and pays no attention to his Inuit roots.
  • “All of them that summer -- the white children when they arrived in sight of the little Eskimos and the latter when they saw the band of ‘town’ children return -- seemingly never wearied of the diverting spectacle they provided for one another” (page 114)
  • Psshh... am I even really Inuit?
