Storyboard Text

  • Just so you know, you're going to stay for a few months and you're going to have to play music on your fife for the slaves.
  • Jessie is outside walking to his aunt's house when he gets kidnapped by a few men who take him away and say they have a special job for him.
  • The men take him to a big boat and say that he will have to play music for slaves that they are going to bring in to the country.  He will have to stay there for at least four months.
  • They get the slaves and are on the way back home and Jessie is ordered to play music for them to dance. Even though he doesn't like it, he does it anyway so he doesn't get in trouble.
  • Jessie! You're Back!
  • It is the last day of being on the ship, everyone (including the slaves) except for Jessie and a young black boy get drunk. Because of this, the ship crashes and everyone except for the boy and Jessie drowns. 
  • The ship crashes and the only survivors are Jessie and the black boy. They are on a piece of land with a lot of trees and an old black man who isn't a slave comes to them and takes them with him and they stay at his house for a week.
  • The old man named Daniel sends Ras, the black boy with other black men, and sends Jessie away to walk home. He walks for a few days and when he got home he was reunited with his family, though he was very traumatized so he couldn't look or listen to almost anything.
