Storyboard Text

  • We must leave for America to find work, mother.
  • Are you sure you can't come with us, father?
  • Liwei! I just spoke with one of the other immigrants. He said he's been here for nearly 2 months getting processed!
  • Bojing and Liwei's rice farm in China has failed. They wish to seek a new way of life in America so they can support their families. (Bojing &Liwei=Brothers)
  • 2 months?! What will we do for 2 months?! We need to get jobs to take care of our sons and wives.
  • Bojing, Liwei, and their families snuck out of the town in the middle of the night, so as not to be caught escaping to the land of Hope.
  • I will pay you 10 cents per day to help lay down and put spikes in the tracks.
  • They boarded a ship, and went to steerage. The ship was packed tightly. There was hardly room to sleep, move, and worst of all... ONLY ONE BATHROOM!!!(Insert terrified sceam here.)
  • At least we are into the country AND have a job, brother. Others will be waiting for this opportunity for months.
  • Bojing, Liwei and family finally arrive at Angel Island. The process for Asian immigrants to be allowed into the U.S. was difficult and long. It could sometimes take months for a single person to be accepted. Some immigrants wrote poems on the walls of the barracks in pencil or ink.
  • Mr. BusinessMan needs all the help he can get with building the transcontinental railroad. He 'persuades($)' Angel Island to accept Bojing and Liwei's hearings.
  • Bojing and Liwei have fun building a railroad in the hot California sun. (Not)
  • I'm only doing this for the family. >:( (Has serious sunburn)
