Storyboard Text

  • Dodong stood in the sweltering noon heat, sweating profusely, so that his camiseta was damp. He was still as a tree and his thoughts were confused. His mother had told him not to leave the house, but he had left.
  • PUSH!
  • Teang was giving birth in the house. She gave screams that chilled his blood. He did not want her to scream like that, he seemed to be rebuking her.
  • Why is Teang so loud while giving birth when other women won’t even cry?
  • Suddenly he felt terribly embarrassed as he looked at her. Somehow, he was ashamed to his mother of his youthful paternity.
  • It's a boy!
  • I do not want to come up. I am scared.
  • Come up to the house and meet them.
  • Dodong...
  • Dodong traced tremulous steps on the dry parched yard. He ascended the bamboo steps slowly. His heart pounded mercilessly in him.
  • Son...
  • His father led him into the small sawali room.
  • The hilot was wrapping the child, Dodong heard it cry. The thin voice pierced him queerly. He could not control the swelling of happiness in him.
  • Many more children came. For six successive years a new child came along.
  • You give him to me.
