The work is a modern adaptation of the myth, where the Minotaur governs through materialism, and devours dreams, honor, and the hope of young people.

Only an enlightened man becomes aware of this reality, but it is not enough to understand the problem, one must have the courage to face it.

The work is intended for all of us to recognize the Theseus we have within us and our power to face the Minotaur.
