Storyboard Text

  • Setting
  • "A furnished flat at $8 dollars a week."
  • Exposition
  • Rising Action
  • I buy hair...twenty dollars.
  • Will you buy my hair?
  • The story takes place in a small city in an apartment the day before Christmas.
  • Climax
  • It was the day before Christmas and Della couldn't afford a present for her husband, Jim.
  • Falling Action
  • Three times Della counted it. One dollar and eighty-seven cents
  • It was a platinum fob chain simple and chaste in design...
  • They were expensive combs, she knew, and her heart had simply craved and yearned over them.
  • Della only had $1.87, so she cut her hair for money to buy a gift. She bought Jim a platinum fob chain. She then waited for him in the apartment.
  • Resolution
  • "They're too nice to use just at present."
  • Jim walks in the flat to see that Della had cut her hair and after a long silence, he finally spoke.
  • "You say your hair is gone?" he said, with an air of almost idiocy.
  • Jim and Della exchange presents a day before Christmas, but little did they know that the gifts were for things they no longer had.
  • Jim suggests that they put their presents away, because they're too nice to use and Della should start dinner.
