Storyboard Text

  • Laura and her daughter are reading children's books. Laura is cherishing these moments that her daughter is in her mother's arms.
  • I never want her to grow up.
  • Do you want to read another book?
  • I am not ready to explain the tragedies in the news right now.
  • Laura is watching the news on the T.V., and her daughter walks into the room. Every night Laura feels guilty for building a barrier around her daughter, however, she does not know how to introduce the running conversation of the world out there.
  • Just the news.
  • What are you watching, Mommy?
  • You have to hold my hand, okay? I just want you to be safe.
  • Laura walks Caroline to school as usual. The two are very close, although Laura is struggling herself on how to communicate her thoughts to Caroline.
  • My son is reading the Diary of Anne Frank. You should read it with your daughter! It will help her understanding of war.
  • While waiting to pick up her daughter from school that afternoon, another mother is talking about her son. From this mother's sharing, Laura realizes that hiding things from Caroline is not doing any good.
  • I wish I could just shield her from the world out there.
  • How do I explain hatred to a child - I'm still confused about it.
  • Caroline innocently asks who Anne Frank was. Laura does not want to lie to her daughter, but does not want to show her vulnerability to her daughter by trying to explain war, a very confusing part of the world.
  • John was reading a book called "Anne Frank". Mommy, who was Anne Frank? Why does she have a book?
  • Laura opens up to her daughter trying to make sense of prejudice in the world. Their relationship grows because of the honesty they now share. Most importantly, Laura is able to let go a bit of her wish to guard Caroline from all the bad in the world.
  • Sometimes people do not like other people, so they kill them. Why, I don't think anyone will ever really know.
  • Some things in the world do not make complete sense, not even to grown-ups like Mommy. People can do terrible things, and Anne Frank was one of the many victims of a terrible hatred.
