Storyboard Text

  • The 'Change' 
  • A Great Honour
  • A Secret World
  • For the first time in the book, Jonas sees that he is somehow different from everyone else. He sees an apple 'change' in midair, "this was the part he couldn't adequately understand - the apple had changed" - Page 39
  • The Truth
  • Jonas is selected as 'The Receiver', a very important job that can only be done by very specific people. A receiver must also have one specific quality, "it is one which I can only name, but not describe." ... "the Capacity to See Beyond." - Page 85
  • The Escape 
  • Jonas recieves his first memory and learns about a whole world that has been hidden from everyone because of Sameness. "Snow made growing food difficult, limited the agricultural periods. And unpredictable weather made transport almost impossible at times. It wasn't a practical thing, so it became obselete when we went to Sameness" - Page 110-111
  • Elsewhere
  • Jonas learns the truth about release and is shocked by it. "For people who break the rules three times? For the Old? Do they kill the Old too?" - Page 193
  • Jonas runs away from the community so that his memories will be given back to the people. He takes Gabriel with him so that he will not be released. "'So,' Father went on, 'we obviously had to make the decision. Even I voted for Gabriel's release when we had the meeting this afternoon'" - Page 206
  • Jonas finally reaches his end destination and has sent all of his memories back to the community. He has escaped the Sameness at last. "all at once he could see lights, and he recognised them now. He knew they were shining through windows of rooms, that they were the red, blue and yellow lights that twinkled from trees in places where families created and kept memories, where they celebrated love." - Page 223-224
