A retelling of The Arabian Nights, King Shahrayar’s heart turns to stone when he is betrayed by his wife. He vows to marry a different woman each new moon and then kill her the next morning…..unless someone comes forward voluntarily knowing she will die the next morning. The storyteller, Shahrazad steps forward and marries the King. Every morning her life is spared as she tells a story that has no end.
