Storyboard Description

The narrator lives and tends to a lighthouse on Three Skeleton Key with two other men, Itchoua and Le Gleo. It is mostly a peaceful life, but one night the three men notice a derelict ship coming straight towards them. When the ship crashes on the Key, countless killer rats stream from the ship. The three of them flee to the lighthouse with little provisions and only a few millimeters of glass separating them from the rats. Eventually, the glass cracks and the rats invade the lighthouse.
