Princess Ojira, the Caliph's daughter, is in love with the cobbler's son, but the Caliph orders the young man imprisoned until Ojira forgets him. One day, a stranger instructs the cobbler to thrust a scimitar into a certain grave in order to obtain the keys to a treasure cave. The cobbler heeds this advice and locates the cave, intending to share his wealth with the poor. Meanwhile, the Caliph agrees to free the cobbler's son in exchange for the head of Seyn, a man who threatens to destroy the ruler if the cobbler's son is not spared. After Ojira learns that Seyn is actually the cobbler, she accompanies the brave man to the treasure cave, where they encounter the son, recently escaped from prison. Offered the cave's vast wealth, the Caliph finally accepts the young man as his son-in-law.
