Storyboard Text

  • Russian border 
  • James's mother, Rachel, recounts her life in an interview with him. Here, her voice can be heard as her father is seen crossing the Russian border.
  • In this scene, we see Rachel being told to pray by her father as a young girl. This gives the audience a glimpse into the religion they identified with and the kind of life they led as Orthodox Jews.
  • Pray!
  • The year was 1929 when Rachel married a Black man who became the father of her 10 kids---including James. Her family shunned her for this and proclaimed her dead by performing the death rituals of their religion. She didn't care. 
  • James lived a normal life as a child. Though he lived in a dangerous, area in Harlem, he still lived in a house.
  • James had 11 other siblings. His mother would put them 2-4 to a bed. 
  • Andrew McBride---James's biological father
  • James had father figures---two to be exact. 
  • I'm your new dad, Hunter Jordan
