Storyboard Text

  • One of King Arthur's Knights was riding through the woods and he saw a woman, he wanted her badly so he decided to violently rape her
  • People asked for execution while others begged King Aurthur for mercy, so he decided to give him to the queen so she can decide his fate.
  • The queen asked the knight a single question for him to answer: "What is the thing that women want the most" the knight had no response so she gave him one year and one day to find out the answer
  • He searched and searched and couldn't find a place where they would tell him the same answers, until one say he was riding back home and stumbled upon the ugliest old lady ever. He asked her whats the thing that women want the most, she told him if she tells him he must give her anything she wants. He agrees and she whispers into his ear and he goes on his way.
  • The knight stood and said, “My lady, generally speaking, women want to have power over their husbands and boyfriends and to have the final say in all matters. Even if you kill me, I know that this is what you women want most. I am at your mercy. Do with me what you will.”  Nobody disagreed with him so he had won the right to live.
  • The ugly old lady suddenly appeared and told the knight to keep his word and do whatever she wants. She told him to marry her but he did not want to since she was so ugly. Eventually he kept his word and married her, but for a long time he was not satisfied until she taught him the core values of love until he was happy.
