Storyboard Description

This is the scene where one of the army leaders come to the village and they gather everyone in the town's square and have a meeting. The meeting was basically telling the people that they have to help in the war against the rebels and if not, then they could leave and end up dead like the man that the lieutenant had brought with him from outside the village. Ishmael didn't want to have no more parts of the war, but he knew that fighting in it would be the only way to live. One of the officers that was issuing equipment seen fear in all the boy's eyes, and told them that the guns they were given would soon be theirs. Ishmael was so frightened thinking about being in the war again, that he could barely get any rest. The next morning, Ishmael and the rest of the soldiers got their uniform and it only made him want to cry, because he had to throw out his cassettes. This scene or chapter is significant, because it's the start of a new more violent period in Ishmael's life that's going to make who he is later on in the story.
