Trouble with functions in python

python

#1

Hi guys
I am running python 3.5.1
Could someone please run this code and tell me what is wrong with it?

import sys
import time
import random

inventory = ()
candle = ('candle')


# This line/section (start1) below is for returning to spawn 
# point after checking the closet

def start1():
        """ 1 - You can, walk through the door in front of you.
         2 - Walk through the door on your left.
         3 - Turn behind you and see what is on the table."""


choice1 = input('>>>')
if ("1") in choice1:
    fall_stairs()

elif ("2") in choice1:
    begin_l_door()

else:
    candle1()


def start():
    """---------------------------------------------------------------------------
        You wake up and do not know where you are.
        You become aware that there is a very dim light
            fixed to the wall behind you.
            1 - You can, walk through the door in front of you.
            2 - Walk through the door on your left.
            3 - Turn behind you and see what is on the table.
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------"""


while True:
    choice = input('>>>')
    if choice == ("2"):
        break

    if ("1") in choice:
        fall_stairs()

    elif ("2") in choice:
        begin_l_door()

    else:
        candle_1()


        def fall_stairs():
            """Because you cannot see where you are going,
                 you fall down a dark staircase and die.
                 -------------------------------------------"""


        print('')
        input('\nPlease press enter to exit.')
        sys.exit(0)


    def begin_l_door():
        """You just enter a dark closet"""


def candle_1():
 """You turn around and find a candle on the table behind you"""
inventory += (candle)

print("Your inventory now contains:")
print(inventory)

start()
