Synopsis

Silhouette animation. When a powerful sorcerer appears with a magic flying horse, the caliph wants it at once, but the sorcerer wants the hand of the caliph's daughter in exchange. The idea incenses her brother, Achmed, and he persuades the caliph to reject it. The socerer retaliates by using magic to lure Achmed onto the flying horse and set off on a flight to his death. Achmed averts disaster and subsequently meets Princess Pari Banu on the enchanted island of Wak Wak, and Aladdin in China.
