Storyboard Text

  • I agree. We will attack when his motorcade passes by near the capitol.
  • Consider it done sir
  • Summon our brothers of the Black Hand. We attack at noon.
  • We must do away with the Archduke. If he falls, then the empire falls and Serbia is free!
  • It will be my pleasure, sir.
  • It's time brother, take this and get rid of them
  • My dear Sophie, we will be late for our meeting with the officials if we do not hurry
  • Quite right Ferdinand; we must go now if we wish to make it on time
  • Serbian Nationalist Gavrilo Princip and his fellow Black Hand Member conspire. The Black Hand was a Serbian terrorist/nationalist group.
  • For Serbia!!! For our country's independence
  • Princip recruits the help of Nedeljko Cabrinovic, a fellow member of the Black Hand.
  • AHHHHH!!!!!
  • Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie get ready to leave and enter into their car of the motorcade. This would be their day alive.
  • Sophie the car ahead of us in our motorcade just blew up!
  • And that man on the corner near the sandwich shop has a gun in his hand! And he's headed towards us!
