Synopsis

Miniseries based on the "Arabian Nights" tales of magic, mystery and fantasy spun by the beautiful Scheherazade. In order to stave off her execution -- and win the love of the Sultan of Baghdad -- Scheherazade tells tales inspired by a master storyteller. The stories unfold at night, from the adventures of Ali Baba, a peasant who loots a treasure cave belonging to the vengeful master thief Black Coda, to the story of Aladdin, the prince of thieves, and a pair of powerful genies; to a king who trades places with a beggar; and, finally, a fable of an amazing quest for the world's greatest wonder.
