This storyboard does not have a description.
Paul's infatuation with money is significant of his immaturity. Throughout the plot, he believes that having money will automatically resolve his problems and create the ideal lifestyle that he envisions for himself. He analyzes the normality of his neighborhood and is constantly repulsed by the idea of being anything close to ordinary.
The theater and the performing arts acts as a safe haven for Paul. While his teachers believe that his motives derive from another source, he truly appreciates the sense of prosperity and fame that is associated with being involved in the arts. Paul proceeds to tell exaggerated tales of the lives of those who work at the theater, which parallels his own feelings about being a performer.
Paul's suicide is representative of his feelings of isolation. Paul's homosexuality and desire to obtain prosperity led him to being isolated among his peers and teachers. In order to distract himself from recognizing his true self, he put on a persona that led others to believe that he thought he was better than everyone else. In reality, Paul was faced with a sense of isolation and oppression due to his homosexuality being condemned by society.
