Storyboard Text

  • In the beginning, there was nothing. Only Sa (otherwise known as death) his wife, and his daughter.
  • They needed a place to live, so Sa created a vast sea of mud where they lived.
  • The God Alatanga came along and told Sa what a terrible place he was living in. Alatanga made the mud into soil then created plants. After that he made animals. Sa was so happy with what Alatanga had done, that he invited him to live with them.
  • Alatanga felll in love with Sa's daughter but Sa did not let him marry her. They decided to elope. They had 14 children,7 girls and 7 boys. Four of each were light skinned and three were dark skined. Also they spoke different languages. This was Sa's curse in retaliation for them eloping.
  • The children explored the Earth and went on to found the peoples of the world. They were happy but all was still in darkness. The tou-tou bird and the rooster were sent to Sa for instructions on how to make light.
  • Sa taught them a song that brought the dawn. However, as payment for the gift, all of Alatanga's descendants must listen to Sa. Therefore, whenever Death calls humans must go.
