Storyboard Text

  • It's an award Mother Agnes gave to me for topping the class this week.
  • What's that?
  • Oh, it's written in French or English. Some day you will be able to translate this for me. Until then we will put it somewhere safe.
  • This is very special.
  • One day Adeline came home from school wearing a medal. Aunt baba was combing her hair in the mirror when she saw it...
  • Is this a picture of my father and dead mama? Do you have any other photos?
  • No, this is your Ye Ye and Nai Nai at their wedding. I don't have any other photos but I do have some of Niang.
  • Adeline then pulls out a certificate from her bag that came with the award. Aunt Baba couldn't read it so she puts the date on the envelope.
  • When did my mama die?
  • When you were three days old your mother came down with a high fever. She died when you were two weeks old...
  • Adeline watched as Aunt Baba got out her safe deposit box. Aunt Baba opened the box with the key around her neck and placed the certificate inside.
  • Your hands are so dirty. Have you been playing in the sand-box at school again? Go wash them and then do your homework!
  • As Aunt Baba was putting the box away an old photograph fell out. Adeline was very curious about that photograph.
  • Aunt Baba then put the box away. Adeline was now curious about her dead mother.
  • Adeline did what Aunt Baba said and did her homework. Even though she is only four, Adeline understands that she shouldn't ask about her dead mama.
