Storyboard Text

  • Look brother, it's Arthur Jarvis!
  • What has become of my son?
  • Arthur Jarvis, a prominent white crusader, hours before his death is seen by Stephen Kumalo and his sister. Kumalo's sister and Kumalo are looking for his son, Gertrude was recently brought back to her Christian ways by her brother.
  • Arthur Jarvis is brutally murdered by a gang of black men, soon sparking a controversial fight in Johannesburg.
  • Kumalo follows the clues and discovers that his son has spent time in a reformatory and has gotten a girl pregnant.
  • Meanwhile, the newspapers announce that Arthur Jarvis, a prominent white crusader for racial justice, has been murdered in his home by a gang of burglars.
  • Kumalo finds his son but is suspicious that he is a sinner, his doubts are vindicated when we (the reader) find out that Absalom murdered Arthur Jarvis. Kumalo gets a lawyer for his son. He also meets Arthur Jarvis' father at the trial. Absalom is given the death penalty at a fairly straightforward trial.
  • On the evening before his son's execution, Kumalo goes into the mountains to await the appointed time in solitude. On the way, he encounters Jarvis, and the two men speak of the village, of lost sons, and of Jarvis' young grandson, who has impressed both men. When Kumalo is alone, he weeps for his son’s death and clasps his hands in prayer as dawn breaks over the valley.
