The main characters are Daedalus and Icarus. The setting takes place on a Island Crete. The main problem is Daedalus and Icarus were held prisoner on Crete.
Daedalus built bird wings so he and Icarus could fly across the sea to safety. He made the wings then he put them on Icarus and himself. 1. Don't fly to high, the sun will melt the wax 2. Don't fly to low, the fog will clog your wings
His son didn't listen to Daedalus and flew up, up, up until he got to close to the sun and the started to melt the wax.
After Icarus' wings fell apart he plunged into the sad and lonely sea.
When Icarus fell into th esea he came back up but he was not alive so his father had to go on the rest of the journey sad and alone.
