King Minos keeps a strange and dangerous beast in the maze of narrow corridors beneath his castle, known as the Labyrinth. This is the dreaded Minotaur who, every nine years is fed a horrible meal of seven young men and seven young girls from Athens, sent down to the Labyrinth to their deaths. Once inside the Labyrinth no one is ever able to find their way out... Theseus, prince of Athens, vows to kill the Minotaur, and he willingly sails to Crete with the other young Athenians destined to sate the beast s horrible hunger. Helped by the king s daughter, Ariadne, who has fallen in love with him, Theseus enters the Labyrinth, armed with his sword and a ball of golden thread. "Unravel it as you go into the maze and you will be able to find your way out" Ariadne tells the young man.
