Storyboard Text

  •  A hunky Dude named Leander lives in a city called Abydus
  • HE'S SO HOT!!!
  • On the other side of the Hellespontis another city called Sestus. Leaner hears there is a festival going on there celebrating Aphrodite and Adonis, so he decides to check it out.
  • While he's at the festival he spots a beautiful priestess of Aphrodite
  • OMG!!! She's so beautiful!!! 
  • She agrees and immediately falls in love with him.
  • Leander tells Hero that it does not make sense  that she is a virgin, because she is a priestess of Aphrodite.
  • Leander suggests that they get married, but Hero states that her parents would not allow her marriage.
  • Leander promise to swim to Hero's tower every night, as long as she leaves a candle in her tower window so he can find her.
  • Years later there was a horrible windstorm and it blew out Hero's candle, but Leander still wanted to see Hero. He tried to swim to Hero's tower but midway the waves overpowered him and he drowned. The next morning Hero found Leander's corpse on the beach.
  • Leander my love, please wake up!
  • Hero was so heartbroken that she threw herself from her tower in to the Hellespont. In the End the lovers could only be together in death. THE END
  • We believe that the theme of Hero and Leander is that love can lead to needless deaths.
