When he has his last chance to restore everything, he realizes that his mission must be to set an example of passion, self-belief, discipline and to continue his life-long commitment. Erik tenaciously continues his path and accepts his fate that although people will possibly remember him as the greatest, he let the most important thing disappeared around him: life.

Prometheus Bound - Through the prism of racial and gender injustice, Prometheus Bound is a protest against the discrepancy between what's legal and what's right, against oppression veiled as order.

The cast for Prometheus Bound includes Sophia Aranda, Juan Arturo, Olivia Rose Barresi, Chloe Simone Crawford, Brenda Crawley, Iván Hernandez, Macy Lanceta, Alice Marcondes, and Kaila Wooten. click here
