Storyboard Description

In the exposition of the short story “Three Skeleton Key” written by George G. Toudouze, this little island Three Skeleton Key got its name from a couple of convicts who escaped prison, got on a boat and got shipwrecked on this small little island. They unfortunately later died from hunger and thirst. This excerpt explained the life of three men living in the light house, and the all the problems they went through together living on Three Skeleton Key. The Narrator, Itchoua and Le Gleo were looking out to the sea and saw a huge ship. The huge ship was floating and going with the direction of the wind and tide it almost looked ghostly and abandoned. They all wondered if there was a crew on that ship and if they were "drunk or insane". All three men were trying to think of reasons why that "beautiful" ship would have been abandoned. The ship then glided right into the cliffs of this small island and drowned, to the mens horror huge rats started swimming up to the shore.
