Storyboard Text

  • A fleet of Japanese planes fly over a city. They buzz with heavy noise and after a short sentence spoken by one of the pilots, bombs fall from the sky.
  • Mako flashbacks to his childhood and remembers how he was inspired to fly and fight for his country.
  • Mako is all grown up and is ready to go off to war. He goes off to his first mission- to drop "food" into small towns. Mako feels happy that he's helping.
  • He returns from his flashback and realizes he's still in a tight situation. "Should he bomb the city or not?" He remembers why he always wanted to be a pilot. To help his country in the war.
  • Mako is the only one to not attack. His fellow soldiers urge him to bomb or else he will be accused of treason.
  • He decides not to drop his bombs, eventhough he could only spare a few people. He runs away and lives as a refugee from the Japanese Empire.
