Storyboard Text

  • Thisbe and Pyramus are neighbor and were in love. Their parents, however, forbid them to married and build a wall between the house.
  • The lovers find a crack in the wall through which they speak and kiss one another. One night they decide to run away together, meeting at the Tomb Of Ninus.
  • R.I.P
  • Thisbe arrives first, and she sees a terrifying lioness with blood on its mouth. She runs away in fear, dropping her scarf. The lioness tears up the scarf and bloodies it.
  • When Pyramus arrives, he sees the scarf, assumes his lover has died, and kills himself in sorrow.
  • Thisbe returns to the Tomb Of Nunis with fears, sees Pyramus' body, and kills herself with the same knife.
  • From then on, mulberries take on the dark red color of their blood, making the lovers' bond eternal.
