Storyboard Text

  • Nicica! Clean the floors until I can see my reflection in them! 
  • My masters are government officials and are very wealthy. They own 10 slaves including myself. We are treated badly by our masters and by all of our masters friends.  
  • My name is Nicica. I am a boy slave and I live in Rome. My masters are Antonia and Balbina. 
  • Since I don't get to learn anything I have plenty of time to clean each and every day. I am low in what you call the "social class" 
  • This is my masters daughters room. My master teaches her every day so she is very smart. She is high on the social class. 
  • In here, my master often throws dances for his people. My job is to make sure it stays clean. At all times. I also have to keep the food well prepared at all times. If I don't there are a lot of consequences. 
  • If I ever have extra time I like to think. I like to think about how my younger sister is doing. I only saw her once when she was a baby. After that, I was sold because I was no longer the baby of the family. 
  • I get to return to my room after all my jobs are done. I eat 1 slice of bread in the morning and one in the afternoon. However, unlike other slaves I get to eat vegetables a lot. For breakfast, lunch, and dinner! I am very lucky when it comes to food. 
  • This is my room. I share it with 4 other slaves. Since I live with a very wealthy family I get better living conditions than most other slaves. 
  • This is my masters church. He goes here to pray with his friends. I have only ever been once with my own family when I was a child. What I would do to go back here. 
  • I often see my masters prayng to god. I pray when I am alone. If I were to get caught it would mean no food for a long time. 
  • Sometimes the only things that get me through the day is knowing that god is taking care of my sister.
  • Sometimes, if I have done everything and more of what my masters have asked me to do. I am allowed to leave the house for a couple of hours. I go and take a bath, and I often met new people. Art is no longer an option for me. That is only for rich people such as my masters.  
  • You better be back in 2 hours! If you are a minute late you will never leave this house
