Storyboard Text

  • I am all alone...
  • Here lies Unoka
  • My father is so lazy!
  • This is Okonkwo, a man who's tragic flaw is the fear of appearing weak
  • I'm good, thanks.
  • Can you please help out your father?!
  • "When Unoka died he had taken no title at all and he was heavily in debt. Any wonder then that his son Okonkwo was ashamed of him?..." (PG. 8)
  • Who cares about the clan or the yams? I just want to drink palm wine
  • Why is my father saying these nonsensical things?
  • "Even as a little boy he had resented his father's failure and weakness..." (PG. 13)
  • Father! don't let them kill me!
  • This is for our own good...
  • "Okonkwo's first son, Nwoye, was then twelve years old but was already causing his father great anxiety for his incipient laziness." (PG. 13)
  • "Unoka was like that in his last days. His love of talk had grown with age and sickness. It tried Okonkwo's patience beyond words." (PG. 25)
  • "Okonkwo drew his machete and cut him down. He was afraid of being thought weak." (PG. 61)
