Storyboard Text

  • Exposition 1/2
  • The year is 2081, this a year that has yet to take place in our time system, and it's definitely not our society. In this society people are forced to wear handicaps when they are higher than average in any influential way. There is a special 14-year-old boy named Harrison Bergeron, who is taken away from his parents by the the H-G men.
  • Exposition 2/2
  • Harrison's parents, George and Hazel Bergeron are watching ballerinas on TV, George handicapped, Hazel not.
  • When suddenly it's announced on the show that they are watching, that their son, Harrison Bergeron escaped from jail.
  • Rising Action
  • Jail
  • Surprisingly Harrison Bergeron appears on the television in all his handicapped glory and declares himself as the Emperor, tearing off his handicaps. He then gets himself a Empress and tears off her handicaps and they danced and kissed.
  • Climax
  • "I am the Emperor!"
  • Falling Action
  • Harrison Bergeron and the Empress/ballerina get shot down, by the Handicapper General, Diana Moon Glampers, dying before they even hit the floor.
  • Resolution
  • "You been crying?"
  • George leaves to get a beer, before his son, Harrison is shot and murdered. But Hazel sees him and starts crying again. When George gets back the TV screen has already blacked out, and he sees Hazel crying, he asks her why she's crying but she can't remember. So they go on unbeknownst to the fact that their son is dead.
