Storyboard Text

  • A man travels in the Yukon on an extremely cold morning and a husky wolf-dog approached him. The cold does not faze the man, a newcomer to the Yukon, who plans to meet his friends by six o'clock at an old claim. He was not afraid of the climax, he was sure that nothing bad could happened to him.
  • The man has a conflict with an outside force: the extreme cold. He was a bit frightened. It certainly was cold. He didn't know it before, but the dog did know because it inherited the knowledge. The man couldn't build the fire. All his resourses were gone.
  • The man accepted he was going to die, and peacefully fall asleep on the snow. As he dies, he has a vision of himself with his crowd of buddies discovering his own body the next day. Then he thinks of the old timer who warned him against traveling alone, and admits that he was world-class idiot to do so. The dog doesn't know what's going on at first, but after it catches the smell of death, it howls for a while and then trots off toward the camp, where it knows it can get food and have a nice fire.
