Storyboard Text

  • Hypatía Belicia Cabral a girl so tall your leg bones ached just looking at her,so dark it was as if the Creatrix had, in her making, blinked who, like her yet-to-be-born daughter, would come to exhibit a particularly Jersey malaise—the inextinguishable longing for elsewheres.
  • The Gangster romanced the girl like only middle-aged niggers know how: chipped at her reservation with cool aplomb and unself-conscious cursí-ness.
  • It's true. The Gangster's wife was—drumroll, please—Trujillo's fucking sister! Did you really think some street punk from Samaná was going to reach the upper echelons of the Trujillato on hard work alone? Negro, please—this ain't a fucking comic book!
  • The Mongoose has proven itself to be an enemy of kingly chariots, chains, and hierarchies- Believed to be an ally of man.
  • What do you think happened?
  • I think she was attacked
  • We're not leaving her
  • Trujillo
  • Cursed people, after all, tend not to drag themselves out of canefields with a frightening roster of injuries and then happen to be picked up by a van of sympathetic musicians in the middle of the night who ferry them home without delay to a "mother" with mad connections in the medical community. If these serendipities signify anything, say these heads, it is that our Beli was blessed.
  • Many years later
  • Ya te tengo. Te tengo
  • She was on the ground, bald as a baby, crying, probably a month away from dying, and here I was, her one and only daughter... So I walked back... That`s when I realized she hadn´t been crying at all.
