Every corner of Crete is a playground for Icarus, the son of the great inventor Daedalus. During an exploration near the palace of Knossos, the boy makes a strange discovery: a young Minotaur is locked in a courtyard by order of the king. They become friends, but fate changes when the Minotaur is led into a labyrinth. Can Icarus save his friend and change the course of a story written by the gods?

The ancient myth of the boy who flew too close to the sun comes to life for the first time on the big screen, in a unique adaptation for young lovers of Greek mythology.
