This storyboard does not have a description.
“And in those dreams, I can never tell Baba from the bear.”- Baba pg.13 “My father was a force of nature, a towering Pashtun specimen with a thick beard, a wayward crop of curly brown hair as unruly as the man himself, hands that looked capable of uprooting a willow tree, and a black glare that would ‘drop the devil to his knees begging for mercy’...”- Amir pg.13
"I'm telling you, Rahim, there is something missing in that boy."-Baba pg.24 "If I hadn't seen the doctor pull him out of my wife with my own eyes, I'd never believe he's my son."- Baba pg. 25
"As words from the Koran reverberated through the room, I thought of the old story of Baba wrestling a black bear in Baluchistan. Baba had wrestled bears his whole life. Losing his young wife. Raising a son by himself. Leaving his beloved homeland, his watan. Poverty. Indignity." (13.51)
“...Baba’s face drawn and pale under the bright fluorescent lights...Baba would look over his shoulder, wave, and smile, his eyes watering from fatigue.”pg. 137
"Amir is going to be a great writer...He had finished his first year of college and earned A's in all of his courses"- Baba pg.139 "'I am motfakhir, Amir,' he said. Proud."- Baba pg.139
"In the end, a bear had come that he couldn't best. But even then, he had lost on his own terms." (13.51)
