For thousands of years, the ancient Greek myth of Daedalus and Icarus has been passed down through countless generations.
Our retelling begins with Daedala, Icarus' mother, in the aftermath of a deadly incident which means both she and her son must flee their old lives. Having asked for help from the only criminal she knows, her dealer Minos, she finds herself trapped in a contract to manufacture hallucinogenic pills known as 'Wings' in exchange for their safety.
Can Daedala use Wings to negotiate freedom for herself and her son? Or will Icarus' natural curiosity and stubbornness end in tragedy?
"Watching my concepts be brought to life was an incredible experience. It has been an honour working alongside such a creative, enthusiastic and dedicated crew; and in the hands of a company that helped me nurture my ideas from mere thoughts into script, and then finally to the screen.
The film came a long way from the original pitch made in a small Devon pub, every step has been a pleasure and I hope one day to work alongside those associated with the project again."
