Storyboard Text

  • Myop was pleased with the beautiful day ahead of her, with harvest approaching and innocent song to be sung.
  • Myop left her rustic sharecropper cabin to reach a near by stream, where white bubbles glossed over the darkened soil. Myop does not understand the symbolism to be found in this significant stream, for innocence is what is her destiny- at this point. 
  • As Myop approached the forests edge, she found her self in an energy that made her want to explore the forest away from her normal path. Myop entered the forest for exploration and fun, yet was being aware of some things of harm- some things...
  • After her time had gone on in the forest, Myop had been collecting flowers. Delecate and light objects that she found herself liking to. However, the enviroment of where the flowers were was different. It was gloomy, dark, and saddened in contrast from her bright flowers. 
  • Myop approached a figure that she accidentally steeped on the figure that  turned out to be a African American like herself.  However, Myop was not dead, and he was. Myop discovered that this body was one that was killed on purpose, due to objects surrounding her. Myop realizes harm and danger is among her. 
  • After Myop witnesses this body, it becomes clear to her that the world does not always contain bright flowers. It becomes clear to her that the world has danger, darkness, and wishes for wrong things. Shortly after, Myop let go of her flowers, representing her loss of innocence. Her clothes are now left black, a change from the purity of innocence to become engrossed in the darkness of the world.
