Storyboard Text

  • I wonder what the sheep are thinking...
  • Why would a king be talking to a shepherd?
  • ...and, above all, don’t forget to follow your Personal Legend through to its conclusion.
  • Santiago lays in an old, abandoned church. He sleeps on the ground, using his book as a pillow. When he wakes up, he notices that his sheep start to stir. He thinks about how he talks to them sometimes. They get up and travel to Tarifa.
  • Santiago sits down to read a new book. An old man, named Melchizedek, sits next to him. Santiago is annoyed but nicely tries to get him to go away. They start a conversation and King Melchizedek gives Santiago advice about his dream.
  • Santiago is told that he has succeeded in finding his personal legend. He is told to go to the pyramids in Egypt and find his treasure. The old man also asks for 1/10 of Santiago's sheep. Santiago sells his sheep and heads to Egypt.
  • He gets to Africa, goes to a bar, and gets a drink. A young man approaches Santiago, speaking Spanish. Santiago tells him about the pyramids, shows him the money, and asks the man to be his guide. He agrees and takes the money. They chat while they walk down the streets.
  • Santiago notices a sword and admires it. The man leaves quietly with the money. The next day, Santiago goes to a crystal merchant's stall and offers to clean the glasses in exchange for some food. The merchant agrees.
  • After they were cleaned, the glasses sold very quickly. Santiago offers to clean the rest of the items in the merchant's shop in exchange for money to get to Egypt. The merchant laughs. Santiago is offered a job with the merchant and takes it to earn money to buy some sheep.
