Storyboard Text

  • Jim and Abby were a couple with a child who lived in a farm in Southern Texas.
  • However the farm was not going too well. They were no longer making profit out of it because of competitors using expensive machines to produce produce 100 times faster than they were and selling it a lot more cheaper. They had to sell their land.
  • They used their money to buy train tickets and move to New York. Where they had hopes of finally marrying there and having many more kids.
  • When they got to New York it was nothing like what they expected. With what they had, they could only afford rent for an apartment in a slum that was dirty, wretched and had freed blacks which they did not like.
  • Jill had some hard time trying to get a job but found one in a cotton mill where he worked under dangerous conditions. This is while his boss left in his new Ford, where he wouldn't see him in again hours.
  • Abby was the one who stayed home with the baby, cleaned up the house, and made dinner with what very little they had. And after all the stressful work, they knew they had church every Sunday to go to.
