Storyboard Text

  • It's an old tradition that's passed down. It makes a girl a woman. 
  • FGM
  • Let's watch this video. 
  •     You're having the procedure tomorrow!
  • I don't care! I've waited long enough!
  • But I don't want...
  • In the first scene, Emma comes on and explains she is a social worker and what the general story is about like a narrator. Then, we all show a typical family scene to show this family is normal. In the third scene, Husna and Clare talk over coffee and Husna gives her clues about what will happen to Amina. 
  • This is really bad...
  • No, no, NO. There had been nothing like FGM happening in this house. 
  • Clare goes home and researches FGM when she realises that the tradition Husna was referring to is FGM. She plays and reacts to a video (that will be acted out on stage at the same time) and then calls Emma to inform her what is happening. 
  • I don't know anything!
  • So... what can you tell us Zainab?
  • The next scene shows the family having dinner and then the topic of FGM being brought up by the grandmother. The grandmother, Husna and Amina argue and then Zainab has a panic attack. The next scene shows the audience different girls' stories about FGM and symbolises Amina getting FGM as all the actors react on stage as if they were having the procedure.
  • In the next scene, Emma comes to the house to ask about what she heard from Clare. The grandmother and Husna deny everything, but then she talks to Amina who tells her what happened. There are then police officers sent to investigate and search the house; they also invite the family to interveiws at the police station.  
  • The next scenes show the police interviews happening. The grandmother denies everything, the mother denies everything at first before letting slip a few clues, Amina describes everything that happens, Zainab tries to put pieces together and then Clare comes to tell everything that Husna told her. 
  • At the end, there is a court scene in which the mother and grandmother get sentenced to 14 years imprisonment as a punishment. The last scene is Emma giving the custody of Zainab and Amina to Clare.
