The exploration of masculinity begins with a portrayal of the outbursting Minotaur, a mythical creature the artist Picasso used to portray himself in his etching print series. In the process of exploration, the Minotaur goes through a violent struggle between being male and female, with their relationship with one another intertwined. Finally, the connotations are flipped, the lines blurred, and the boundaries of identities are crumbled.
