Storyboard Text

  • Persephone's mother, Demeter, comes in calling for her daughter. She asks Persephone's friends where her daughter is and frantically searches for Persephone.
  •  Persephone! Persephone! Where are you?!? Come out this instant!
  • Demeter travels to the village of Eleusis, disguised. She meets a young girl there.
  • Thank you, thank you, little girl. That would be lovely.
  • Oh, you poor, sad woman. Would you like to come to my house? My mama can tend to you.
  • Demeter travels to the girl's house, where she meets her family.
  • Hi, everyone. This woman was crying on the street. Can we take her in?
  • Of course! Welcome!
  • Demeter decides to turn the baby into a god. She felt bad about not taking care of Persephone, so she decided that the least she could do was take care of their baby. However, she is caught by the mother, Metaneira. 
  • Here's your ambrosia. Now, into the flames-
  • You evil woman! What are you doing with my baby?!?
  • Demeter reveals her true self to the mother, then leaves.
  • Do you know who I am, lady? I am Demeter, the goddess of the earth, the grower of all seeds! And I was going to make your son a god!
  • It's alright. I love this child more than anything, except for my own daughter. He will grow to honor me.
  • Oh, I'm so sorry... I didn't know...
  • Metaneira told her husband about what happened. The story spread, and the townspeople built a temple for Demeter. She watched them build it in her home in the clouds.
