This storyboard represents the lack of growth and hope within the Harper High community. We follow a blooming flower, a metaphor of the student’s potential. As it begins to bloom, the petals quickly dry up as the petals fall and disintegrate into gunpowder... the violence stripping students of hope. The dying iris, represents the loss of growth, leaving the students confused and hopeless at a prime time in their lives. They do not have the choice, and are left without bloom.
