Storyboard Text

  • EXPOSITION
  • Margot, you must come shower. It's unhealthy not to. Margot! Get here now!
  • No! The water mustn't touch my head!
  • CONFLICT
  • The Sun is warm and is shaped like a penny. I remember.
  • She thinks just because she's from Earth that she's smarter than us!
  • RISING ACTION
  • I think the sun is a flower, that blooms for just an hour
  • It's stopping! It's stopping! The rain is stopping!
  • 
  • Margrot lives on Venus. She moved there from Earth when she was five. On Venus, it rains constantly, the Sun only comes out for an hour every seven years. She misses Earth and the Sun.
  • CLIMAX
  • It's just a joke Margot! Geez! Why do you have to be so whinny!
  • Margrot is an outcast in school on Venus. The other kids don't like her because she's from Earth and they are jealous of her to be able to live in the sunlight while they have been living on Venus their entire lives. They don't believe her when she describes the Sun.
  • FALLING ACTION
  • Wow! The sun is like a big gold coin. And it feels warm!
  • Today was the day! After seven years the Sun will come out. Everyone is excited and looking out the window waiting for the rain to stop. Margot is happy that she will she the Sun for the first time in five years. She hates the rain and misses the warmth and brightness of the Sun.
  • RESOLUTION
  • We didn't mean to leave her in there. It was just a joke!
  • After another argument about when the Sun will come out, Will, a boy who strongly hates Margot, grabs her and throws her into a closet then locks the door. Margot screams and bangs the door to get it open or to get someone to help her, but she can't get out. 
  • Will! Will! Let me out! Somebody! Please! Let me out! Please! Anyone!
  • Distracted by the rain stopping, the students leave her as they head outside. The sun comes out, leaving the students stunned by it's beauty and warmth. For an hour they run and play in the sunshine. All the while, Margot is left in the dark closet.
  • This is so much better than playing inside, I wish it was like this all the time!
  • When the hour was up, the rain came again and the students ran into the underground facility where they have lived their entire life. Stricken with sadness, they return to the classroom only to remember Margot was still in the closet. They walked over the closet and let her out.
  • Poor Margot. She has been wanting see the Sun for five years and will now have to wait seven more.
