Storyboard Text

  • The last streaks of sunlight were already slithering under the trees when Dawan and her mother started walking home from Noi's house. In the twilight lull, Dawan suddenly heard the quick footsteps behind them. She glanced back and saw Kwai darting after them.
  • Okay.
  • I'd better be getting back to start dinner, child. You can wait for Kwai if you want to.
  • Soon, Kwai said that Dawan dragged her mother to Noi's house to get her on her side. After speaking to Dawan in an angry manner, Kwai apologised to sister when he had caught up with her after she walked off. Dawan forgave Kwai and told him what had happened at Noi's house.
  • Huh! If I knew you were going to be this impatient and rude, I wouldn't have waited for you!
  • Well, is Noi coming over tonight to talk Father into letting you go to the City? What did Ghan say? Is he going to support you too?
  • You mean they don't want you to go? I thought they loved and admired the City so much! Huh!
  • Perhaps there had been a mistake, and she hadn't really won? Perhaps girls were not allowed to go after all? Perhaps .... What do you mean by all those words Kwai?
  • Kwai asked Dawan if she still want to go to the City to study. Dawan, of course, is keen to go whereby Kwai himself, wanted to go so badly but didn't get the chance to win the scholarsip.
  • Does ... does that mean you get to go instead of me?
  • I may get to go yet.
  • The teacher told me that I was second, right after my own dear big sister. It means that if you don't go, I get to go.
  • Dawan took a deep breath and told Kwai that she is insisting on going to the City to study.
  • As Father had said that this will be the last year he will pay for my school-fee, if I don't grab this opportunity, I won't get any more schooling. As long as you want to go on studying, Father will still send you to school.
  • Father will only send me to school within his means. If I want to go to the City, it's too expensive for him. He wants me to get the scholarship so that I could go on my own.
  • I'm every bit as good as you are! You think you can take on this responsibilities? You can fight, argue and lead, and help make a better place for the rest of the villagers to live in?
  • They both continued to argue about the scholarship. Relieved that Kwai was just challenging Dawan's concept of scholarship and not her right to it, she calmed down and tried to persuade Kwai in a gentle manner.
  • Look, Kwai, I know what will be helpful in creating change for our village, and ...
  • That's what we all thought. I guess that's why Grandmother made me go over there. Now it'll be harder than ever to get Father's permission.
  • You're only a girl. You won't be able to fight, argue loudly or lead people in times of crisis! All you're good at is studying and that's how you got the scholarship in the first place.
  • Yes, I can!
  • They continued the next few steps in stony silence. They started to think of solutions in order for both of them to study in the City. After that, Dawan was afraid that Kwai would tell his Father he got second for the scholarship.
  • Are you going to tell Father that you came in second, right after me?
  • If I tell Father, he won't let you go and you would probably hate me forever. If I don't tell him, I'll never get to go and would end up hating myself.
