Storyboard Text

  • “Warmth” Jonas replied “and happiness. And - let me think. Family. That it was a celebration of some sort, a holiday. And something else - I can’t quite get the word for it.”
  • In the community, there is no love. Love they say is a vague word with no meaning. But this was the first time he realized what love truly meant. He felt something made him happy and warm.
  • He is told what love is. In a world that has no true meaning for love this is a moment that Jonas will never forget.
  • “Love,” The Giver told him. Jonas repeated it. “Love.” It was a word and a concept new to him.
  • “Your father means that you used a very generalized word, so meaningless that it has become obsolete,” his mother explained carefully.
  • When Jonas asked his parents if they loved him there was a cold silence. Love meant nothing to them. In this world love is not real no one has ever felt love for one another.
  • The Giver hugged him. “ I love you, Jonas,” he said. “ But I have another place to go. When my work here is finished, I want to be with my daughter.”
  • The Giver says that he loves Jonas. This is the first time someone said they love him. But this is also the time when we learn that the Giver loves someone else, his daughter.
  • But it was necessary because it had the child seat attached to the back. And he had taken Gabriel, too.
  • Jonas loves Gabriel and wants to save him from being released. He is willing to carry Gabrial out of the community and take care of him on the run.
  • Jonas only cares about Gabriel and loves him. Jonas starves himself to feed Gabriel and tries to keep him safe. There is nothing that Jonas wouldn't give for Gabriel.
  • He wept because he was afraid now that he could not save Gabriel. He no longer cared about himself.
