The Story

After King Shahryar's wife betrays him, the world around him turns dark. He vows to marry a woman each night, and before sunrise the next day behead her. Scheherezade is the latest unlucky woman to find herself in the King's bedchamber. Before she is beheaded she begins to tell stories to Shahryar, keeping them going till sunrise and ending each night on a cliffhanger to keep her head. As he listens, the king is transformed both by her stories and her love.

They are tales of love, they are tales of deceit; they are tales of dreams, they are tales of madness; they are tales of passion, they are tales of heartbreak; and of one enormous fart.
