Storyboard Text

  • Jonas: I have not suffered Giver. Not really. Maybe if you gave me some of the pain, your pain will lessen. Giver: (Nodded) It is time I suppose. I can not shield you forever. Lie down. (Jonas received his first painful memory and was left in pain)
  • Jonas´s Father: Jonas, is there something wrong? Do you feel well? Do you want some medication? But Jonas remembered that remember his rules. No medication related to his training and no discussing his training. That night Jonas realized that they have never known pain. Jonas felt alone and eventually fell asleep dreaming of the anguish and isolation on the hill.
  • Jonas: Giver, why do we have to hold the memories? It would be much easier if everyone had the memories. Giver: But then everyone would be burdened. The Receiver is so vital to them because it lifts that burden from them. Jonas: But that's not fair! Lets change it, together we can think of something. Giver: The decision was made long age before your time and mine.
  • Jonas: Mother? Father? How about we put Gabriel's crib in my room tonight? It would help you two get some sleep. Jonas's Father: I don't known Jonas. What if you don't wake up with Gabriel's restlessness? Alright Jonas, just for one night.
  • Gabriel began to whimper and Jonas began to pat his back and began to remember the memory of the sail and all of a sudden Gabriel stopped whimpering. Jonas pulled his hand back, unaware that he had given away the memory. He stepped back and stood quietly by the crib.
  • Gabriel started to whimper again towards dawn. This time Jonas deliberately put his hand on the child's back and gave him the last piece of the memory. Now Jonas wondered if he should tell the Giver about what happened. This powered scared him and he decided not to tell.
