But to do so Jason must first find the magical Golden Fleece. He selects a crew and with the help of Hera Queen of the Gods sets sail in search of the Fleece. Jason and his crew must overcome incredible obstacles including a 100-foot bronze giant the venomous Hydra--a huge creature with the heads of seven snakes--and a spectacular battle with an army of skeletons.
