Prince Merjane, the son of the Sultan, is not able to sleep. To solve his problem, he commands all the women of the kingdom to tell him a bedtime story that would help him fall asleep; those who fail to make him sleep are sent to prison.
Eventually, all the women are imprisoned because none is able to make him fall asleep; he doesn’t like fairy tales, nor lullabies, nor traditional songs… he has had enough of those and wants to be treated as an adult when he is only 7 years old.
Enter Scheherazade, the princess of the Thousand and One Nights, who carries him into a story where he will not only be a listener, but also play a crucial role and learn an important
What will happen when Scheherazade’s stories come to an end? Will Merjan finally be able to sleep or will he stay in a hurry to grow up?
