Storyboard Text

  • Exposition 
  • The American War in Vietnam seemed to me wrong. Certain blood was being shed for uncertain reason. I saw no unity of purpose, no consensus on matters of philosophy or history or law. the very facts were shrouded in uncertainty: Was it a civil war? A war of national liberation or simply aggression?  
  • Conflict
  • What did the letter say 
  • Nothing
  • Rising Action
  • Through out Tim's study's at college he was heavily against the war in Vietnam. A month out of college, Tim O'Brian receives a draft letter. 
  • Climax
  • Twenty Yards. I could've done it. I could've jumped and started swimming for my life. Inside me, in my chest, I felt a terrible squeezing pressure.
  • Judgement and guilt surrounding his decision to avoid the war. Man vs self and Man vs society.
  • Falling Action
  • The end is near
  • Tim is running away from society, trying to escape the war he hates. Tim drove North until, at noon he found Tip Top Lodge where he stayed for 6 days.
  • Conclusion
  • And right then I submitted. I would go to war- I would kill and maybe die- because I was embarrassed not to.
  • Tim O'Brien deciding whether to leave to Canada or face his fears. 
  • Tim O'Brian heading back home to accept the draft to the war he didn't believe in .
  • Tim O'Brian goes to war a "coward" and survives, then returns home.
