In the city of Athens, King Aegeus is forced to send 7 men and 7 women away to the island of Crete due to demands of King Minos. Once on the island of Crete, these men and women are forced into a labyrinth to fight the minotaur. King Aegeus' son Theseus speaks up and offers to go in attempt to kill the minotaur so that no other Athenians had to.
Okay son, but if you return, change the sails to white so I know you have survived.
Father, this is wrong. I must go. No more athenians should have to ever be sent to Crete.
