Storyboard Text

  • And yet, they called in their neighbour who knew everything about life and death to see him.
  • He’s an angel. He must have been coming for the child, but the poor fellow is so old that the rain knocked him down.
  • The news spread quickly about the angel, and soon enough the whole neighbourhood knew. The couple was encouraged to get rid of the angel.
  • Lola, did you hear the news?
  • Angel?!?!
  • Did you hear about the angel?
  • During the night, the rain stopped and the child’s fever broke.
  • Pelayo, maybe should set him free and send him away on the raft with three days worth of necessities. No one has to know.
  • However, in the morning, the entire neighbourhood was in their yard feeding and playing with the angel.
  • There were people visiting from all over the world.
  • Sounds perfect!
  • With the constant company, I think we should start charging people that come by, what do you think?
  • Great idea! How about 5 cents per person?
  • The couple began charging their five-cent admission, and decided to place the angel in the chicken coop.
  • I don't care!
  • This is Matthew, he took an eight day journey to come meet you...
  • Go away!
