Storyboard Text

  • Christopher Langan lived in extreme poverty. He lived with his three brothers, his mother and his abusive father, whom always got drunk and beat his children up, in a broken rundown house. The children had one pair of clothes to share amongst themselves.
  •  His father was addicted to drugs and smoking, came home drunk every night and beat up his own  children with a bullwhip. One night, Christopher had had enough. He was lifting weights recently, and became much stronger. His father got rough with his kids one night, and Chris knocked his drunk father out cold. His father left the very next day, never to return. 
  • Chris was a very gifted boy. He graduated and earned two scholarships; one at Reed College and one at the University of Chicago. He chose Reed College. The first semester, Chris was scoring A's, meeting deadlines and generally being a star student. 
  • The second semester was much different. Chris discovered that his scholarship was being taken away. His mother neglected to sign a parent's financial statement. Chris didn't know why. His ticket to saving his family from poverty was stripped off him. He began receiving F's on all his tests, and before end of year exams began, he left college. 
  • Chris didn't appreciate the way the school handled the situation. They did not warn nor inform him about the late statement until weeks after the deadline and didn't provide him with any aid or support. Chris left college and used the money he earned after school at his job to buy a house in Bozeman, his home town. He began working in construction, and slowly progressing towards a successful life.
  • Around 30 years after the late statement incident, Chris was living his ultimate dream. He had a steady family for a long period of time, he was wealthy and was promoted many years ago to receive a dominant rank in construction and he was justified for the unfair life
