Orpheus and Eurydice Orpheus and Eurydice inside the subway train.

'L' is an experimental narrative film based on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Specifically, the film features the couple's precarious return from the underworld, during which Orpheus knows to avoid looking at Eurydice lest she fall back into the depths of hell. Yet, almost inexplicably, as their journey is almost complete, he looks at her. The film surmises the possible events leading to his tragic action.
