Broken: Rock Paper Scissors Summary

Rock resembles an ape in shape and the way he walks. 

Paper is a beautiful fairy-like creature. She floats through the air and is able to make flowers bloom with a wave of her arms. 

Scissors is the villain in the film. He has sharp pointed facial features and blades for arms. His eyes have a piercing glow that makes him appear evil. 

One day Rock peers over a rock cliff and spots Paper for the first time. He is immediately smitten with her. Off to the left, Scissors cuts his way through the forest heading right for Paper. Rock runs to rescue Paper. As he tries to pull her to safety, Rock’s hand crumbles. He motions for her to follow him, and she does. Scissors catch up. Paper makes a dash to stop him, but Scissors knocks her to the ground. While Paper lays in an unconscious heap, Rock battles Scissors. He soon breaks Scissors to pieces.

Rock sees that Paper is dying. Pieces of her papery body are floating away. Rock knows carrying Paper will be his end, but he does it anyway. Rock carries Paper to a beautiful meadow where the sunshine will heal her body. When Paper recuperates and wakes up, she finds Rock broken to pieces, his destruction caused by helping her. Paper picks up Rocks head and cradles it to her.

    I love how you explained your poem for theme by telling about the connection you have made to that poem! Just what we want our students to learn to do with great literature- make connections to it to help us connect in a deeper way.
