Storyboard Text

  • Mr. and Mrs. Loisel
  • Hey, Honey. I brought you an invitation to the ball.
  • I do not want to attend if I do not have a dress and jewelry.
  • I will take this one, please.
  • Okay, dear. I will wrap that up for you. 
  • Can I borrow this necklace for the ball?
  • Yes, just be sure to return it.
  • This is Mr. and Mrs. Loisel. Mrs. Loisel is very upset because of her low fortune, and Mr. Loisel has come home with an invitation to the ball. Mrs. Loisel refuses to accept unless she has a new dress and a beautiful necklace.
  • We must search for it!
  • I lost the necklace!
  • Mr. Losel gave her the 400 francs he had saved up to buy a gun, and Mrs. Loisel went shopping to pick out her dress.
  • They worked for 10 years to make up the money to buy another necklace.
  • Mrs. Loisel came home and decided she wanted a necklace, so she went to her friend, Mrs. Forestier, to ask for a necklace. She chose a beautiful diamond necklace and promised to return it after the ball.
  • I lost the original necklace, but we worked for 10 years to return it.
  • Mine was an imitation. It was worth 500 francs at the most!
  • Mr. and Mrs. Loisel are now attending the ball and Mrs. Loisel has now realized that she has lost the diamond necklace. Mr. Loisel retraces their steps and even goes all over town to see if anyone has found the necklace. He returns with no luck.
  • Mr. and Mrs. Loisel find someone who has a necklace extremely similar to the diamond necklace they lost and ask to buy it. It cost 36,000 francs and they had to work for the next 10 years to make enough money to purchase it. 
  • At the end of the 10 years, they have made enough money to purchase the necklace. Madame Loisel returned to Madame Forestier and explained why it took so long to return the necklace. Madame Forsetier replied saying hat her necklace was a imitation and that it was worth 500 francs at the most.
