Storyboard Text

  • Two respectable families living side by side with an ancient grudge between them.
  • I love you. I want to be with you.
  • But we are not allowed to be together because of our family's hatred towards each other!
  • How dare you murder Mercutio? For this you will die!
  • In the city of Verona, there are two families, Capulet and Montague, who do not get along and are always quarreling with each other. The Prince declares that the next person to disturb the peace will be punished with death. The Capulet family decide to throw a masquerade party. Romeo, the son of Montague, hears of the party and decides to show up in disguise. Romeo goes to the party hoping to catch sight of the girl he loves but instead meets another called Juliet and falls passionately in love with her.
  • If we can't live together, we will die together.
  • After the party, Romeo sneaks into the garden below Juliet's window and overhears her declaring her love for him. Romeo then climbs up the balcony and converses with Juliet for the remainder of the night, all the while falling deeper in love with her. The lovers arrange to meet the next day at the cell of Friar Lawrence and be secretly married by him.
  • It's your fault our daughter is dead! Your bloodline is cursed and our son is dead!
  • Juliet's cousin, Tybalt, had recognized Romeo at the party and was angry that a Montague had dared to be present at a Capulet party. Tybalt's anger comes out in a quarrel with Romeo's friend, Mercutio, who is killed when Romeo steps in to break up the fight. Romeo is angry with the death of his friend and kills Tybalt, causing him to be banished from the city. Romeo goes to Friar Lawrence for help, who arranges for Romeo to secretly spend the night with Juliet and then flee safely to Mantua.
  • Our ancestors were wrong.
  • Our children would have been a good match.
  • Our families were wrong to feud.
  • Amid the Capulet family's sorrow at the death of Tybalt, Paris requests for Juliet's hand in marriage. Capulet and his wife are delighted by the proposal. Juliet, however, refuses but to no avail. Juliet's parents plan to force her into the marriage, unaware that she is already married to Romeo. 
  • Juliet is distraught over her predicament and goes to Friar Lawrence for assistance. The Friar gives her a potion that will put her in a state feigning death. Juliet will then be buried and Romeo will come, fetch her from her tomb, and take her away. The next day, Juliet's wedding party thinks she is dead. In the meantime, Friar Lawrence sent a message to Romeo about the plan, but it never reached him. Romeo instead hears that Juliet is dead and buys a vial of poison, intending to poison himself at Juliet's tomb.
  • Upon reaching Juliet's tomb, Romeo is surprised by Paris. A fight breaks out in which Paris is killed. Romeo then drinks his poison and dies at Juliet's side, just as she wakes from her deep sleep. When Juliet learns of Romeo's death, she becomes frantic with sorrow and stabs herself to death. The couple's deaths cause reconciliation between the Montague and Capulet families. The families decide to erect a monument in the memory of Romeo and Juliet as a reminder of what their anger had done.
