This storyboard does not have a description.
After a long journey, the Bitterings arrive on Mars. Hesitantly, they walk out, wondering if it was such a good idea to come here. They don't turn back, however, and are determined to make the most out of Mars life.
At first, they live in fear of the martians who had previously lived on Mars. They try to forget about the fact that they, as well as the other humans who came with them, took over the martians' planet.
Then comes trouble. One day, while walking outside. Harry, the father, sees that something is wrong. The peach blossoms are not peach blossoms, the carrots are not carrots, the grass is not grass. He panics, and rushes to the other humans.
When he finally reaches them, he questions about the strange happenings. To his surprise, they are not concerned at all about the land. He notices that one of the men's eyes turned golden, and that his had too. Panicked, he starts building a rocket to go back.
As time passes, he does less and less work on the rocket - it seems pointless to him. He notices that all their skin is turning darker, and their eyes continue to become golden. In addition, they start talking in the old martian language, forgetting all about English.
By some supernatural force, the settlers are all drawn to the mountains, where the martians supposedly live. They completely abandon their old life, living like the martians in their old villas. By the end, they have turned completely into martians.
