Storyboard Text

  • It was a dark New Year's Eve.The little girl wandered the snowy streets with bare feet.She left the house with slippers but had lost them,scurrying away from a carriage accident happening nearby.The only thing she had were matches she was unsuccessfully selling.
  • The young girl found a crevice between two town buildings that she had slumped down into, avoiding going home. She knew if she arrived with not a penny, her father would beat her under the shabby house roof. She lit one of the matches, trying to keep warm.
  • The little match instantly flashed into an iron stove through her eyes. She sprawled out next to the stove, enjoying the warmth. How the fire was big and beautiful. The flames had vanished, as did the stove, leaving the girl in cold darkness once again.
  • Oh, grandmother! Please take me with you! You will vanish like the warm stove, the roast goose, and the big, glorious christmas tree. 
  • She rubbed another match on the wall, leaving her entering into a splendid dinner of roast goose filled with apples and plums.The goose had leapt from the table, running towards the girl with a fork and knife dangling from its breast.
  • When the other match died out, she lit another one. This time she was sat under a glorious Christmas tree. She made her way over to the art on the wall that she had seen through the town windows. As she reached out to them, the match went out.
  • The final match had led the girl seeing her grandmother. Her grandma had passed away and she begged her to take her along.  They held onto each other and flew into the sky. People thought the girl had suffered from the cold. They did not know of the miracle that happened with her grandma on New Year's Day.
