Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Conflict
  • Rising action
  • Brady lives along the Corsica river in Chesapeake Bay. His dad is a water-man and Brady often helps him with his crabbing. Brady has two close friends, JT and Digger, and has some neighbors, the DiAngelo.
  • Climax
  • This is a character vs. nature conflict, it is an external conflict. One day Ms. DiAngelo and her 4 year old son, Ben, were out on the river when their kayak sunk, resulting in Ben's eventual death.
  • Falling action
  • The conflict continues when Brady finds a drill with red paint on the tip matching the kayak's. The problem intensifies when Brady finds that he has reason to believe JT and Digger may be to blame for Ben's death. Also when confronts JT who confesses, and when he finds Digger looking for the drill and he tells Brady that his fingerprints are on the drill. Brady then drops the drill in the river
  • Resolution
  • The most dramatic moment of the story was when Brady decided to tell his dad about JT and Digger's accidental murder fiasco by pulling the kayak out of the water so he can see the holes in the hull. This freaked Brady's dad out, and he asked to know what happened. Brady's mom was none too happy either.
  • Now the conflict is more Digger and JT vs. society and the weight is now off Brady's shoulders and on his parents. Brady and his dad go to see a lawyer about what charges Brady will face, and the lawyer says none, though his friends will face serious charges.
  • JT and Digger go to court to get their sentence, and Brady is glad that they only face a little time in juvenile detention. Brady finally feels like a normal boy again, without worrying about this, that, and the other thing like he used to. The problem remains like a Pancheros burrito that has yet to be wrapped in foil, with the fact that Brady's friendship with JT and Digger might never be the same.
