Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Conflict
  • Rising Action
  • In an Asia town, a Christian school just opened, next to a Jewish ghetto where hateful things happened to those who believed in the Christ. A young widow's son is one of the very few students attending the school. 
  • Climax
  • This little seven year old is deeply devoted to his faith, despite his young age. He had just learned a few latin songs and sang one of them, Alma Rodemptoris, which praised the Virgin Mary, on his way home.
  • Falling Action
  • As he walked home, his singing provoked the anger of the Jews in the city. It is said that their hearts were made by Satan, which is the main reason why they hired a murderer to kill the kid.
  • Resolution
  • The murderer that is hired by the Jews has one goal that he completes, which is to slit the little boy’s throat and throw him into a  pit.
  • The widow saw that her son didn’t come home, so she went look for him. She goes up to the Jews and ask them for information, but they refuse to give any help. She ended up getting the idea to sing the same song her son sang, and found him with a slit throat, but singing along her.
  • the child starts singing along his mother, and the Christians of the city were amazed and called the head of the cathedrale to punish the Jews that did that by hanging them . They sprinkled holy water on the guy, which made him speak. He said that he was able to sing because the Virgin Mary placed a grain on his tongue. The grain was taken, and he died peacefully, in a marble tomb, as a martyr.
