Dying tragically on her wedding day, Eurydice is prematurely plunged into the underworld. Reunited with her father there, she struggles to remember her past life and love. Filled with fantastical characters roaming a surreal landscape, this contemporary retelling of the traditional Orpheus myth, recenters the hero’s journey on the heroine, in a touching, darkly comic examination of loss and love.
