Enrique dances the story of the poor rich boy who suddenly becomes a pauper, but learns how to live and love in the real world. A Disney story, almost certainly.

The twins know that once they reach sunlight the spiders cannot harm them. [long shot, twins; fx: blurred spider legs in background] They hurry along the path feeling both the ever-increasing sun on their faces and a corresponding resurgence of their bravado. [twins straighten up as they run, feeling the sun’s warmth, determination replaces fear on their faces; fx: sunrise, as over a hill, backlights twins] As the spiders feel the heat on their backs, they slow and then stop, futilely waving their legs at the escaping twins. [spider still blurred in shot; fx: spider moves jointed legs]
