The basic story of the Ancient Greek myth is given: the labyrinth, the Minotaur, Theseus, Ariadne and of course, the thread. Theseus bids tender farewell to his beloved and steps into the maze. He searches for the monster resolutely, his sword drawn and ready to fight. In the meantime, suspecting nothing, the Minotaur roams the labyrinth.
Midday heat and silence engulfs the streets of the downtown housing estate. A couple of kids play football in the shade of a nearby driveway.
