Storyboard Text

  • In a utopian society, ruled by the Committee of the Elders, where everything works perfectly and everyone seems happy, Jonas, a 12 years old boy who lives with his parents and younger sister, is about to become an adult by taking part in the Ceremony of Twelves.
  • THE GIVER
  • One day, the Giver shows Joans one particular memory: the young boy sees his father performing the “release” of a baby and realizes that the baby has been murdered. Although his father is unaware of what he’s doing, Jonas understands that there is something wrong with the society he lives in.
  • Joans devises a plan: he wants to escape with Gabe, a baby, who was very weak, that his father had to take home. If Gabe wouldn’t grow up, he would be release. So the two boys run away: Joans wants to go Elsewhere, which is right outside of the boarders. They run at night and sleep by day, so that they wouldn’t get caught.
  • During the ceremony, where every boy and girl’s future is decided by the Elders, Jonas, unlike his friends, is undecided and doesn’t know what job he will be assigned.
  • Jonas’ turn is skipped and he is the last to be called. In a twist of suspence, he is called to be the new Receiver of Memory, so he starts his training with the Giver, who passes Jonas the memories of the past.
  • After they cross the boarders, Jonas and Gabe run until they arrive at a house. Inside, Jonas sees a family celebrating Christmas and his heart fills with joy. Then he takes a sled he finds near the house and, with Gabe, he slides down a hill in the snow.
  • Joans devises a plan: he wants to escape with Gabe, a baby, who was very weak, that his father had to take home. If Gabe wouldn’t grow up, he would be release. So the two boys run away: Joans wants to go Elsewhere, which is right outside of the boarders. They run at night and sleep by day, so that they wouldn’t get caught.
