Curiosity is an evil master. A beautiful princess has a husband she can never see. He visits her only in the dead of night. When curiosity overcomes her, she discovers who he really is, only to be cruelly abandoned. Now Psyche must begin an impossible task: to find her husband, even descending to the depths of Hell in her search. But she has earned the wrath of Venus by rivalling her in beauty, and the vengeful goddess will stop at nothing to destroy her.

Lucius Apuleius (2nd Century AD) was born in North Africa and travelled widely, visiting Italy and Asia, where he was initiated into numerous religious mysteries. He drew on the knowledge he gained about the priestly fraternities to write the Golden Ass, which Cupid and Psyche is extracted from.
