When tragedy separates Orpheus (Emily Fons) from his beloved wife, Euridice (Emily Birsan), the distraught young man makes a deal with a mysterious figure named Amore (Jocelyn Claire Thomas). Descending into the underworld with Amore’s help, Orpheus resolves to bring Eurydice back, but there’s a catch. He must convince her to follow him without speaking.
