Using the storyboard, I am depicting the scene in the novel where the father dies overnight and one of the "good guys" greets the son on the road. This scene is one of my favorite scenes, even though it is sad, because it demonstrates how the boy cared deeply for his father and will never let the memory of him fade, while also looking out for himself like his father told him to. The boy protects himself by using the pistol as defense and asks numerous questions before deciding what he thinks is best for him and agrees to go with the "good guys" hopefully leading to a better life.
I hope it is not his last night. We need to stick together. I hope I can keep us warm.
I can't believe he is dead. How am I going to survive on my own?
