Storyboard Text

  • WOW! That's gotta be a new School record! Way faster than my best time anyway.
  • Oh man, that last turn really knocked the wind out of me. 
  • Feels like we've been practicing all day. Let's head home. 
  •  Come on, man, you gotta tell me your secret!  You'd give the Flash a run  for his money!
  • A magician never reveals his secrets. Besides, it's not as cool as you think it is. 
  • How am I this tired already? I ran half as hard as you did. 
  •    I'd settle for walking at this point!
  • Time and practice, my friend. Time and practice. I think I learned to run before I could walk.
  • Jean Vanier dedicated the majority of his life to benefiting those who suffer from disabilities in our society. This story is meant to embody those realities and ideals.
  • So... what is your  secret, really?  
  • I understand if you don't want to tell me.
  • You really wanna know?
  • In this scene, we can start to get an insight into the character on the right's vulnerability/disability and it is obvious he is not proud of these traits. This is a common societal theme that Vanier addresses. 
  • I'm the last guy that should be running track, but I think that's why I do it.
  • I have asthma. I've had it ever since I was a little kid. The Doc says I shouldn't be running like this at all, but I do it anyway. 
  • I wanna be the best that I can be... and if that means I have to push myself harder than anyone else, then that's exactly what I'm gonna do. 
  • In this scene the character on the right gives the other character some advice that may be an important life lesson, but it is at the cost of hiding his vulnerability.  
  • Seriously! That's your secret?  The only thing I'm wondering is why bother hiding it at all? You're like a real-life superhero!   If I was in your shoes, I'd say, "Hello world! I'm the best runner at school and I won't let my asthma or anything else hold me back!"
  • I bet we double our records by the end of the year!
  • We'll shoot for the Moon! And if we fall... we fall among the stars.
  • Thanks. That's... exactly what I needed to hear.
  • Well, we should head home. Got a full day practice tommorrow.
  • Now the main character makes a significant choice to reveal his disability. It's clearly not a decision he takes lightly.
  • Disabilities do not have to be obvious to others to have serious impacts on a person's life. This is a disability that has affected me personally and many others that I know.
  • The main character's courage to admit his vulnerability clearly pays off because it solidifies his drive and motivation. Being able to overcome a difficult challenge is one thing. Being able to overcome a challenge that you start off at a disadvantage with, is an even greater accomplishment.
