Storyboard Text

  • Everything was just perfect on Mount Olympus. Persephone was sitting on Demeters lap in her throne atop the mountain.
  • Demeter and Persephone went down to the fields one day to tend to the crops. Persephone went off alone into the meadow alone. Hades saw her from the underworld and wanted her for himself.
  • Suddenly, a huge crack in the ground appeared! Hades came out of the crack and took Persephone on his charriot. Hades took her to the underworld.
  • Demeter went looking all over for her daughter. When she finally saw that she couldn't find her, Demeter was filled with so much grief that she stopped growing food and supporting the crops.  
  • Zeus was begging Demeter to grow crops and food again. But, the only way for her to do that was if she got Persephone back. So, Zeus sent Hermes to the underworld to bring back Persephone.
  • Hades let her go, but Persephone ate the terrible pomegranate seeds. So, even though Persephone was freed, she had to spend half the year in the underworld with Hades.
