Storyboard Text

  • Odysseus, under the guise of a beggar, went to pray to Zeus for luck and scarce was his prayer when a thunderbolt came from a clear sky.
  • Telemachus and Odysseus both have a share of dinner as they are ingoring the suitors who look on from the dining table. 
  • Penelope comes out with the bow of Odysseus and challenges the suitors to see who can shoot one arrow through rings of twelve axes to see who she will marry.
  • Telemachus tries to shoot the bow to stop any of the suitors from marrying his mother, Penelope.
  • Odysseus quietly follows two of his old servants, Eumaeus and a cowherd, out of the grand hall and shows them the scar a boar gave him in the past to prove he's back.
  • Odysseus comes back to the hall after he talked to Eumaeus and the cowherd and takes his turn to shoot an arrow through the rings of the axes set out before him.
