Storyboard Text

  • The Songs of Life
  • The Gods Grant A Wish
  • The World of the Pearl
  • Kino and Juana's infant son Coyotito gets bitten by a scorpion. The white doctor in the town refuses to help them because they are Indians and have no money. 
  • After visiting the doctor, Kino and Juana go pearl diving to attempt to find a pearl that could pay for the treatment. Kino finds an enormous pearl, the Pearl of the World, which he believes will get him and his family out of poverty. Coyotito also mostly recovers from scorpion sting.
  • As news of the pearl spreads, many men stop and think of what they would do with such a pearl. Kino himself envisions what he will do with the pearl - getting married to Juana, buying new clothes, giving Coyotito an education, and buying a rifle. However, that night, a mysterious figure enters Kino's and Juana's home and attempts to steal the pearl, though Kino drives him off with a knife. Afterwards, Juana begs Kino to get rid of the pearl, but he refuses.
