At the heart of the labyrinth, the Minotaur skulks. It is the ultimate monster, waiting only to devour you whole. Or is he a person, misunderstood and turned into a monster by those who should care for him? His sister, Ariadne, loves him, but she also loves the great hero Theseus. Who will she save and what will escape from the labyrinth?
