Storyboard Text

  • Meet the Prescotts!
  • Whatever you do don't open the door!
  • Why not?
  • Because we will get consumed by dust!
  • This is so frustrating!!
  • How are we going to make any money?
  • They own a farm in New Mexico where they grow wheat for a living.
  • Oh, our poor daughter...
  • One fine day a huge dust storm broke and the family were forced indoors.
  • What are we going to do now?
  • Where am I going to work?
  • They could now no longer work the land nor could they pay their mortgages.
  • Where will we live?
  • Their daughter was bedridden from dust pneumonia.
  • They had no choice but to sell everything and move out of their town.
  • Soon the Prescotts set their way to Arizona. In the city it was hard to find jobs and to live there. They had a rough year because of the Dust Bowl.
