This storyboard does not have a description.
On the third part of Odysseus' voyage back home to Ithaka, he tells his crew mates that they will rest on Helios' island, but they will not touch his cattle or else they will be severely punished by the Gods. Eurylokhos, one of the men, convinces the other men while Odysseus is asleep, to eat one of the cattle. When Helios sees this, he convinces Zeus to punish Odysseus and his crew by ripping their ship apart.
After Odysseus realizes that Zeus cast lightning which split the ship apart and killed all of his crew mates, he tries to get to shore somehow. When Odysseus looks up, he realizes that he is back next to Skylla and Kharybdis. He grabs ahold of a piece of his ship and floats slowly away to safety.
