Storyboard Text

  • Twenty dollars for the dog.
  • Barren Woman
  • Ed was looking all over for the Doorman. Finally he saw a boy with his dog. The boy would only give Ed the Doorman if Ed gave him twenty dollars. Along with his dog, he got the Ace of Spades with three names written on it.
  • Wow! These lights are amazing!
  • Thank you Ed.
  • A few nights later, Ed has a dream about a barren woman. It turns out that "Barren Woman" was a poem written by Sylvia Plath, one of the names on the Ace. Ed figures out that all three names on the card are writers.
  • What is going on?
  • Here are your tickets.
  • Ed goes to the library to find books written by each of the three writers. He matches a word in the title to a street name. He goes through the book and finds a spade next to a page number. The number and the name form the addresses he needs to go to.
  • At the first house Ed decides he was sent there to buy the family Christmas lights because their lights were old. The family was so thankful Ed brought them Christmas lights.
  • The second address was a restaurant. Ed saw his mom on a date. This message was for his mom. He needed to make her realize that he is not like his dad.
  • The last place Ed has to go is to an old theater. An old man owns the theater and just wants people to have the same experience he had when he used to go to the theater. Ed decides he needs to bring Audrey to the theater and watch a movie.
