Storyboard Text

  • After a few days, Explorer Nate isn't feeling very good. So he decides to head home until he feels better and to record his findings.
  • I'm not feeling very good so I'm going home.
  • On the walk home, Explorer Nate keeps stumbling and has a hard time walking.
  • I can't seem to keep my balance.
  • Once he gets home, Explorer Nate goes to the hospital to find out what's wrong.
  • I keep falling, my speech is slurred, I have tremors all over, and I randomly begin laughing and can't stop.
  • What seems to be the problem?
  • I'll run some tests.
  • After running a few tests, including a brain biopsy, the doctor returns with some bad news.
  • What's Kuru?
  • I'm sorry, but you have Kuru Disease.
  • As the doctor begins to explain what kuru is, Explorer Nate has one big question...
  • But how'd I get it?
  • Kuru is a rare neurodegenerative disorder that is uncurable.
  • The doctor begins to explain how Kuru is transmitted.
  • On the first day I ate dinner with the chief. It had meat.
  • Kuru is transmitted by eating infected brain flesh. When you were in New Guinea did you eat any meat?
  • That's probably where you got it.
