Eight-year-old Mia loves it when her brother Levin reads stories to her, like the one about the horrible Minotaur, the creature with a human body and the head of a bull. Then suddenly, she is no longer allowed to see Levin because of his addiction – or so her mum says. But Mia doesn’t understand and lets Levin into their apartment secretly. Suddenly he starts behaving very differently…This short drama, which includes some imaginative animated sequences, is about a young girl’s helplessness as her older brother’s life becomes more and more dominated by his drug addiction.
