Truth is a space that is contested. In relating stories, the truth is also being communicated - at least the version that the storyteller wants to be heard.
Chasing Cinderella explores the contest of truths by using the plot of dead storytellers competing against each other in hell for the grand prize of rebirth. Through their retelling of folktales, the fight between them mirrors the battle of truths.
As they strive to assert their narratives so that it becomes the dominant one, the dead bards are answering the question: "What is the nature of man?' Whose truth will prevail?
