Storyboard Text

  • Sisyphus is a mortal on Earth who somehow communicates with the gods. With this ability, he asked the gods for the favor of giving water to the citadel of Corinth. The gods however did not appreciate this act by Sisyphus.
  • Sisyphus tries to trick the gods, but they saw through it. Zeus therefore condemned Sisyphus to the underworld.
  • When in the underworld, Sisyphus once again tricked the gods, in this case Hades, by telling him that he was not buried properly so he wants to tell his wife to bury him properly. After this action however, Hades punished Sisyphus for eternity. 
  • Sisyphus' punishment was that he had to constantly push a large boulder up a long, steep hill with the boulder always rolling back down to destroy something. Sisyphus had to perform this task for the rest of his existence.
  • While doing this for the rest of his existence, Sisyphus felt as if he had no meaning to fe as he was simply performing the same task over and over again.
  • However, after finally coming to accept his fate, Sisyphus has found hi essence in his existence. By accepting his fate, Sisyphus now feels he has found his own purpose in his life.
