Storyboard Text

  • BEGINNING
  • "Now and then someone gave him a ride, but most of the way he walked. He walked through forests. He crossed over mountains."
  • MIDDLE
  • Listen, if I believed a dream I once had, I would go right now to the city you came from, and I'd look for treasure under the stove in the house of a fellow named Issac.
  • END
  • "Sometimes one must travel far to discover what is near."
  • Isaac has a reoccurring dream that tells him to go to the capital city and look for treasure by the bridge of the Royal Palace. He decides he will listen to his dream and journeys to the palace.
  • At the palace, the Captain of the Guards asks him why he is there and the man explains his dream. The Captain laughs and says it's a pity the man has traveled so far for a dream.
  • Isaac travels back to his home and digs under the stove and finds a treasure! He builds a house of prayer and adds an inscription. He sends a priceless ruby to the Captain of the Guards. Isaac is content and is never poor again.
