ARABIAN NIGHTS VOL. 1

In Portugal, a film director proposes to build fictional stories from the miserable reality he is immersed in. As he fails to find meaning in his work, he cowardly runs away and leaves the beautiful Scheherazade to stand in his shoes. She will require enthusiasm and courage so as not to bore the King with sad stories of this country. Therefore, Scheherazade organizes the stories she tells the King in three volumes.
