This storyboard does not have a description.
It's the year 1840 in Jessie's world, and she's starting to get a little nervous because many students at school were missing because they are sick, and her little sister Katie is among them.

Jessie's mom pulls her aside, and explains to her that there is an outbreak of diphtheria, and that Jessie needs to find help. She doesn't understand, and her mom reveals that they're actually living in a real life museum model, that was built for tourists to see the past, and in current times, it's 1996! The only way to stop the outbreak is to get medicine, and Jessie has to do it.
When Jessie makes it out of the exhibit, she's shocked by all the "modern" technology, like toilets, sinks, and lights. She's trying to find where she's going, but she's not fitting in very well and had some pretty close encounters of being caught outside of "her" world.
She finally figures out how to use a telephone, and calls the number that is supposed to lead her to the person who will surely give her medicine, but he turns out to be someone who catches her, takes her back to his "apartment", and wants to kill her because she knows too much about this whole situation.
We're going to have to kill her. She knows too much.
Jessie's holding a news conference to talk about the outbreak, but she too is sick from all that energy wasted searching. She wakes up in a hospital, and is delighted to see her family is well, but that 2 of her friends died from disease, and she didn't make it in time.
It wasn't your fault, honey.
After Jessie got better, they returned to Clifton Village where her dad now governed the village, but they would still go to school in the modern world, and Clifton restored peace.
It feels good to be home!
