Storyboard Text

  • Let's get you some medicine and get you in bed. I'm sure you'll feel better by tomorrow!
  • I don't feel well, I have a sore throat!
  • I don't fee- wait, what's your name again?
  • Martin! She's Kim...your sister.
  • How are you feeling today Martin?
  • I'm so sorry, we've tried everything. We don't know what else to do.
  • Martin, the main character and narrator, doesn't have any memories of his childhood due to being in a coma. All he remembers is coming home one day complaining of a sore throat and having his health decline from there.
  • What would you like me to make you for lunch?
  • ...........
  • He slowly started forgetting how to do simple tasks. Then, his family realized how serious his case was when he started forgetting faces he had known his entire life.
  • Ok Martin! I'm gonna ask you to point at objects on the screen with the laser we put on your forehead
  • Doctors tried every test, but were unable to find anything wrong. Martin slipped into a coma. The doctors didn't know what caused it, when, or if, he would wake up, or how to make it better. The family was left with no answers. He stayed in this state for years. He woke when he was 16.
  • How do you like your knew communication system?
  • I love being able to communicate again!
  • When he woke, he was what the doctors called unresponsive. He didn't move or speak and was unable to even stay sitting up on his own. What no one knew, was that Martin was fully comprehensive. He understood everything said and done to him, he just had no control over his body movements or voice.
  • People all around Martin started to realize that when they asked him a question, he always responded with either a swing of his head or a smile; singnaling a yes or no. They figured, if he can understand them and respond to yes and no questions, maybe he could understand them, but was unable to respond. So his parents decided to have him tested.
  • He tested positive. He was able to do all the tasks he was asked. They figured out he was fully comprehensive, but for whatever reason had no control over his voice. So, Martin was given an alphabet board to start. then, they realized he could have so much more range of communication if they bought him a laptop h could type on and have the computer voice say it.
