“All men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil. The only crime is pride.”
After the Theban Civil War comes to an end, the newly-appointed ruler Creon orders the fallen Polynices to remain unburied on the battlefield as punishment for his crimes against the state. Appalled by the decision, the Polynices’ sister Antigone defies Creon, burying her brother regardless. After Antigone openly confesses to her actions, her loved ones find themselves forced to stand against her – or be implicated in her crime – as she faces a doomed fate.
