Description

Children can dream of what it is like to fly in this reworking of Ovid's classic myth, told through the eyes of servant girl Amara. When Daedalus the inventor and his son Icarus are imprisoned by King Minos, escape looks impossible. But with his ingenious talent Daedalus manages to construct wings, enabling the pair to take on the form of birds. Tragedy strikes when Icarus fails to listen to his father's instructions, and the invention that should be his saviour
proves to be the opposite.
