Storyboard Description

I have been a slave for 20 years. I have tried to escape before. It was a stormy night and I was very scared. I was so close to the Mason-Dixon line when a professional slave catcher caught me. He brought me back with my owner. I found out my best friend snitched me out. Now I'm in Louisiana.
