Storyboard Text

  • Nya's Exsposition!
  • Nya's Inciting Incident 
  • Nya's Rising Action
  • This is Nya. She walks 8 hours a day to get water from a hole in the ground. The water is very unsanitary and unhealthy. Since she does not have shoes she often steps on thorns.  She meets people at the watering "hole" and that is where she gets to socialize.
  • Nya's Rising Action
  • When Akeer, her little sister, gets sick, it upsets Nya. She is getting sick from the dirty water, and here is nothing Nya can do. They need water and have no other places to get water. Akeer will continue being sick unless they get clean water. 
  • Nya's Rising Action
  •      Two men come to Nya's camp and start talking. People starting getting anxious and jumpy. No one knew what the men needed. But Nya's brother overheard them talking about water. 
  • Nya's climax
  • Nya is thinking that the men are crazy because there hasn't been water in the dried  hole for a while. The men began clearing the trees.
  • They men brought what looked like a giant red iron giraffe, and it is loud. Rumors are being spread that the men are dinka. Nya is very confused about why Dinka would help the Nuer. The two tribes had been at war for decades. 
  • When the water sprays out of the ground it is life changing. Nya relizes that she won't have to walk 8 hours a day anymore. But then she is confused . The water is still dirty.
