Jason takes the bull by the horns

A young man called Jason washes up on the shores of a mysterious land after losing control of the submersible in which he is searching for the wreckage of the submarine on which his father disappeared. Heading for a nearby city, he seeks refuge in the home of Pythagoras, who informs his unexpected guest that he is in the legendary city of Atlantis, and introduces him to Hercules (Mark Addy), a bragging coward.

To find an explanation for his strange predicament, Jason visits the Oracle (Juliet Stevenson), who informs him that he was born in Atlantis and is destined for greatness.

When Pythagoras is selected to face the Minotaur, a terrifying creature with the head of a bull and the body of a man, Jason takes his place and, with the help of the king’s daughter, survives his first trial.
