Storyboard Description

The Grimm brothers' short story, White Snake, depicts the venture of a servant in the medieval era. While, throughout the folk tale factors free will & fate impact the servant's journey. Other characters are also affected by these variables. Free will plays a huge part in the servant's life. For example he chooses to look at the king's food, a white snake, & acquires a small taste. He becomes the 1st & only person to ever see the king's hidden dessert. Then, the servant is later accused of stealing the king's ring, comes up on a duck who possesses the ring & gains the king's permission to grant any of his desires after returning the ring. Fate strolls into play as well. The servant took a ride of hope/faith on his horse & during his course he spotted a small group of fish gasping for their lives. He helps the fish get back into the water and they thank him for saving for their lives & promise to pay their debt. In a test of love the servant must retrieve a ring from the sea or he shall be drowned. A few moments after the ring was tossed into sea, 1 of the fish he'd save earlier grabbed it for him & ultimately saved the servant's life. Therefore, proving the elements fate & free will operate significant roles in the Grimm brothers' short tale White Snake, impacting the servant's wild escapade.
