  • In this cell the town is waiting for the drawing to start. They are waiting in between the post office and the bank. Everyone is acting normal while socializing and kids playing.They are waiting for Mrs.Huchinson to join. Tension is used in this scene because everyone is ready for the lottery to start.
  • The stoning
  • In this cell the town is waiting for every male of the household to pick a slip of paper for the lottery. One slip of paper has a black dot on it. Everyone is waiting to see who gets it. Is it their family member or someone else? It is a mystery because no one knows who got the black dot.
  • The Huchinson family gets the black dot. So the family has to draw again. Out of the five family members, Mrs.Huchinson gets the black dot. She keeps telling everyone they didn't give her husband enough time to choose. It is surprise because I wasn't expecting for her name to be pulled.
  • In this cell everyone is grabbing stones and pebbles. They are going to throw the stones at Mrs. Huchinson because she had the black dot. Unfortunately the towns people have never questioned this ritual. Another life is going to be lost. It will probably continue as an annual tradition in this town .
