This storyboard does not have a description.
An oracle told the King of Thebes that one day his son would kill him. When hearing this he ordered his servant to toss the baby into the river but the servent left it in the mountains instead.
Oedipus, along with the king, are in conflict with the prophecy. They continually try to fight fate in the story.
Oedipus gets angry at an old man for hitting him with a stick. He then kills both the old man and all of his servants present except one.
Oedipus returns from learning that he killed the king to find the Queen dead. He then realizes that if he was destined to kill his father, the king, that would make the women he married and had kids with his mother. Upon learning this Oedipus gouges his own eyes out.
Odedipus banishes himself from Thebes and takes his two daughters with him.
Oedipus is left to wander the land poor, old, and heartbroken.
