Cupid and Psyche ...

Cupid is charged by Venus, jealous of Psyche's beauty, to make love with the girl's death as despicable. But he himself falls in love with Psyche. He moved to live with him in his castle. He joined the night, asking him to never seek to know his identity.

She will manage to find the price of all kinds of tests during which several gods are helping him. Following this, they get married
