Arabia - a very long time ago, a long way away. Two adventurous young thieves, Miloshin and Zhitva, meet while trying to steal the magnificent treasure of the Sultan and Arabia. So begins an epic journey of adventure as the pair team up and set off across the desert to sell their loot and make a fortune. Amongst the treasure is the ring of Solomon, a jewel of immense magical poser. If it were to fall into the wrong hands it could destroy the world. The dark and terrifying wizard Du-Shou wants the ring... and is prepared to kill to get it! Only Miloshin and Zhitta's cunning and bravery can save the world from destruction. Oh, and a certain dusty old carpet... Age 7+ Running time approx 2 hrs
