Storyboard Text

  • "I had not slept so well for months now, and so far I had been able to  avoid my nightmares by busying myself day and night with listening to and writing Bob Marley's songs. But that night I had nightmare that was different from the ones I had been having ."
  • "It began with my swimming in a river in Matru Jong with my brother Junior."
  • "We ran home for dinner, racing each other. When we got there, the food was sitting in pots, but no one was around. I turned to ask my brother what was happening, but he was gone. I was alone and it was dark."
  • I found a light and turned it on. There were tons of men in the room holding weapons with which they hurt each other. Their blood filled the room. I began crying as the blood filled the room. The men disappeared and the door swung open. I ran outside to find my mother, father and my two brothers.  "It was the first time I had dreamt of my family since I started running away from the war."
  • "The next afternoon I went to see Esther, and she could tell that something was bothering me"
  • Would you like to tell me about it?
  • I had this dream last night. I don't know what to make of it.
  • None of these things are your fault.
  • "Even though I had heard that phrase from every staf member-and frankly I had always hated it- I began that day to believe it."
