Psyche is so beautiful that the whole world envies her for her beauty. No prince dares to ask for her hand... That's what the ancient fairy tale "Amor and Psyche" by Apuleius says.
But here we depart from the romantic spiel and things take a different turn:
Psyche doesn't fall in love with Amor. To avoid punishment by Venus, she doesn't receive help from gods but from hard-working ants and dark dragons. With their help, she outsmarts monster sheep and crosses the realm of the dead. One adventure follows the next until Psyche realizes that she possesses a supernatural power that can help her become a goddess herself.
