About this submission

The main characters of HELL AND BACK are based on Eurydice from the Orpheus myth and Lot's unnamed wife in the Old Testament. The story explores the questions: What if these women told their own stories from their own points of view? Who benefits when we don't look back? What happens when we do?

HELL AND BACK is a short scifi script written in response to the July Mystery Sender Challenge where a character receives a text message from an unknown sender that says "Don't look back."
