Chania, early 17th century. You’re a young maiden that has been living a forbidden love with the son of one of your family’s advisors. 

But when your father arranges you to marry someone else, you must decide: either be used as a commodity that has no say over her own life, or elope with the man you love. So you pluck all your courage, pretend you’re going out with your governess, and start looking for him.

Can you manage? Can you get to him before your family finds out you’re missing?
