The classic myth of Orpheus and Eurydice is re-imagined in this contemporary story, as seen through the eyes of its heroine. After a tragic accident on her wedding day, Eurydice travels to the underworld where she is reunited with her much-loved father. Guided by a chorus of Stones, Eurydice must learn to accept the harsh rules of death as she struggles with a new language and haunting memories of her beloved husband. With ingenious plot twists and breathtaking visual effects, Eurydice is a poignant love story about life, loss, and unthinkable choices.
