This is a tale of two princes and their destinies. Prince Hoshyar gains rank and fortune by supervising the construction of huge metallic fishes that perform wondrous tasks and bring riches to the people of his land. His brother, Prince Tambal, is interested only in a wooden horse that he obtains from a humble carpenter. But the horse is a magical one. It carries the rider, if he is sincere, to his heart’s desire.

One day Prince Tambal disappears on the magic horse. He is away a long time and has many exciting adventures before he obtains his heart’s desire and can return home.
