Storyboard Text

  • The main character, Hilary, gets into a coma from a motorcycle accident and dreams about talking to a Jewish Lady negatively about how disgusting her people are.  She obtained this hatred of Jews from her father's murder that had happened due to his Jewish boss that planned for the building to collapse. This continuous despise for Jews led her to a Neo-Nazi Gang.
  • Hilary started spinning in her dream and lost consciousness but as she stops spinning she finds herself in a different girls body named Chana as to where she later finds out is a Jew based on the yellow star she is wearing. As she and her friend continues to walk in the neighborhood, they stop at a building where there was other Jewish woman cleaning and were forced to clean by soldiers who were in charge.
  • After Chana finishes her duties at the building, she sees her father dangling from a tree with soldiers who were punishing him for not finishing his job. Chana steps in persuades the guards that she will finish her father's job but failed to complete the task and got her father killed in the process. Chana's brother, Jakub, takes charge of the family due to the death and tried to form an escape plan with Mosze but died with Jakub safely escaping the area.
  • As Chana's family moved out of their old home and stayed at a new place in the ghetto, thy were confronted by German police who were sorting out the children and the elderly which meant that Anya and her mother had to leave. Jakub tries to hide Anya but is confronted by a problem by Bubbe stating that they will just take someone else in Anya's place.
  • Chana loses each family member one by one until she is the only one remaining with her escape from Lodz to be compromised and was sent to a concentration camp where she learned the true horror of being a Jew in this time period. The only way she can slowly survive this torture is by playing the violin to the Nazi soldiers.
  • As Hilary is about to awake from her coma, she confronts Chana who tells her that she has progressed as a human being and someone who has changes their viewpoints about Jews but Hilary is not sure she is ready to set out to make a change but gets reassured from Chana that she can. Hilary wakes up from her coma and finds out that her mother has been with her the entire three days that she was in the coma and with a surprise calls her mother "mom" and starts making amends by having concern to where Simon is but is reassured that he is in good condition.
