In the spirit of the Arabian Nights, a young boy, Hamid, is bound as a servent to a couple he believes to be his Aunt and Uncle, until one day a beautiful but ghostly figure hands him an old carpet. Both the woman and the carpet seem remotely familiar and indeed they lead to being reunited with his father, a prince, while the abusive couple get their comeuppance.
