This storyboard does not have a description.
Oedipus was trying to comfort his people when their children were getting sick and dying after just being born. Revealing that he has sent his brother in law to ask the God Apollo what they can do to end the plague, also revealing that he will have to get justice for the former king.
Oedipus called Tiresias, a blind prophet, to help him find the kings killer. Tiresias was hesitant to tell Oedipus what he knew about it all because it would also reveal Oedipus' origin, or background. Tiresias tells Oedipus that his real mother is his wife, Jocasta.
Jocasta couldn't bear the truth and went to her room, and hung herself. Oedipus found her and gouged his eyes out with her broach. He did this so he couldn't see the light, but forever see the dark.
