Storyboard Text

  • My name is Emma and I'm 27 years old and I live in Dublin, Ireland.
  • During the 1800's, Ireland was going through a time of the famous Potato Famine as well as suppression from Britain.
  • " Sir is there still room on the voyage to America?"
  • " Yes Emma there is still room but the boat leaves tonight at 11PM SHARP"
  • Emma, along with other men and women from Dublin are leaving to America for religious freedom and a surplus of food. 
  • These immigrants would be on the water for about a month long, they'd end up getting to the Port of Entry in Ellis Island, New York. 
  • We've made it lads! Were here! Look at that.. Ellis Island.
