Storyboard Text

  • No one in the class could remember a time when there wasn't rain.
  • This was the schoolroom of the children of the rocket men and women. But Margot stood apart from these children.
  • It had been raining for seven years and this was the way life was forever on the planet Venus.
  • Now the rain was slackening, and the children were crushed in the great thick windows.
  • Margot had come here only five years ago from Earth. She remembered the sun.
  • What're you looking at?
  • And so, the children hated her for all these reasons of little and big consequence.
  • They had been on Venus all their lives and long since forgotten the color and heat of it.
  • They surged about her and bore her pleading and then crying, back into a closet.
  • The rain slackened still more. They crowded to the huge door.
  • And the jungle burned with sunlight as the children, released from their spell, rushed out.
  • The rain stopped. The world ground to a standstill. The sun came out.
  • Now don't go too far, you've only two hours, you know. You wouldn't want to get caught out!
  • And then... In the midst of their running one of the girls wailed. Everyone stopped.
  • They came slowly to look at her open palm. In the center of it was a single raindrop,
  • Oh, look, look! *snif snif*
  • A few cold drops fell. The sun faded behind a stir of mist. A boom of thunder startled them and they ran.
  • They looked at each other and then looked away. They walked slowly to the closet door.
  • They closed the door and heard the gigantic sound of rain falling in tons.
  • Margot! She's still in the closet where we locked her.
  • They unlocked the door, even more slowly, and let Margot out.
  • They closed the door and  heard the sound of rain falling  in tons and   avalanches.
