Storyboard Text

  • There once were three people who were thrown into a dungeon when they were young children by an evil king.
  • They never got to see anybody unless they walked by the window. They look out of the window and see images and shadows of people and things that walked by. They were always curious of what was outside of the spooky dungeon.
  • One day the king chose a person to set free, and she was so excited to finally be free. 
  • She explored the large kingdom and saw everything she had missed out on her whole life because she was trapped in the evil kings dungeon. While she was free to explore the kingdom, she remembered her fellow prisoners and all they were missing out on.
  • As she was roaming around the kingdom the king decided to throw her back in the dungeon and never free her or the other prisoners ever again. She begged the king not to send her back, as looking and wondering what is going on in the real world is horrible, but the king did not change his mind.
  • When she was thrown back into the dungeon, she tried to explain to the other prisoners what was on the outside, but they didn't believe her and decided to stick to the beliefs they had come up with and determined was on the outside. The other prisoners would never treat her the same way, as her view on what is on the outside will always be different.
