This storyboard does not have a description.
Odysseus and his men journey to an island that they believe is not inhabited by anybody. They get off the boat and a couple of the including Odysseus begin to explore the island.
Odysseus and his men come upon a cave and make themselves at home by eating the food etc. The owner of the cave came in and was very unhappy. He was a Cyclops named Polyphemos. The Cyclops ate four of the men.
Odysseus gets Polyphemos drunk and while he is sleeping, he takes a wooden stake and stabs him in the eye, blinding him.
Odysseus and his remaining men escape the cave by hanging on to the bottom of Polyphemos' goats and rams. Since Odysseus blinded Polyphemos, Polyphemos didn't see them escape, but he had a feeling something was happening because the biggest black ram was not walking normally.
Odysseus and his men run from Polyphemos and Polyphemos does not get any help from his neighbors because he was like the boy who cried wolf. Odysseus did not know that Polyphemos was Poseidon's son and that Polyphemos prayed that Odysseus never make it home.
Odysseus and all of his men board their boat and sail away from the Cyclops' island unaware of the trouble they will encounter because of Polyphemos' prayer that he may never return. Also when they left the island, Odysseus stole as many of the animals there as he could as food for his crew.
