Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • That is a nice watch could use a nice one!
  • And that's a nice comb for your beautiful hair!
  • Conflict
  • How will I ever find a way to get the money for Jim's Christmas present?
  • Rising Action
  • Hello, do you buy hair? I'm trying to make more money.
  • Your hair is priceless, but I would take it for $20.
  • A poor couple, named Della and Jim, admire a couple of valuable things that would seem special to the both of them at a store.
  • Climax
  • Della has some trouble with spending money on a gift for Jim. She can't stand living through Christmas without giving her dear husband a present!
  • Falling Action
  • Haha! What have we done!
  • Della enters a barber shop, hoping to sell her hair for money to buy a gift for Jim. She wants to purchase the band watch she saw him admiring back at the store.
  • Resolution
  • Jim comes into the apartment afterwards, and stares at Della's hair. He is surprised at what she did with her hair. She said to sit down and give each other their Christmas presents, and so they did.
  • They both laughed with each other, thinking of the irony of what just happened. They both admired items for their most valuable, sentimental objects, and so they sold those objects to buy that other person the object they wanted.
  • They realized that they sacrificed their most prized possession of their lives to each other, but they both truly know that they did this on the basic ideas of love.
