Storyboard Text

  • The story opens with 3 brothers at a bar.
  • They discuss that one of their friends was killed by the mysterious figure named Death.
  • They meet an old man on a road who says they can beat death if they find him under an oak tree. They do not find death, but a bunch of money under this tree.
  • The youngest brother goes into town to buy wine. He has the thought "what if he kills his brothers, and then can take all the money for himself?"
  • The other two brothers are also thinking they should kill the youngest one so they can have a greater share.
  • The youngest brother goes to the Apothecary to buy poison so he can kill his siblings and take the money.
  • When the brother returns, the other brothers jump out and kill him. The irony in the story is that the Pardoner was trying to show how bad greed was for humanity, but it ended up in murder.
