Storyboard Text

  • Persephone, daughter of Demeter was picking flowers. She sees a narcissus flower and bends to pick it up. But she doesn't know that it was placed there by Zeus to help Hades bring her to the Underworld.
  • When Demeter found out that her daughter had been taken by Hades, she turned her back on the world and nothing grew for a year. People began to starve so Zeus sent messengers to plead with her, but she wouldn't listen. So Zeus sent his son Hermes to plead with Hades. Hermes told Hades what Zeus had ordered and Hades told Persephone to go, but remember him.
  • Both of them knew that if anyone ate in the underworld they could not escape it. So Zeus talked with Hades and they agreed that Persephone would remain with Hades for 3 months of the year. That is when Demeter makes winter come. In the srping, Persephone is returned to Demeter and flowers bloom and the earth is alive again.
  • Persephone was restored with Demeter, but Demeter noticed something on Persphone's mouth, it was a fruit stain.
  • Did you eat in the underworld?
  • Just some pomergranate seeds.
