Once there lived two brothers. For the good hearted Ali Baba, a poverty stricken wood cutter, life is all toil and hardship. But for the proud Kasim Baba, married to a merchant's daughter and as rich as trees are rich in leaves, life is easy. The two brothers are alike as chalk and cheese. Then, quite by accident, Ali discovers a secret, and from then on life for the two brothers will never be the same again... In a brand new re-telling of this much loved folk tale which forms part of The Thousand and One Nights, the creative team behind The Ugly Duckling and Aesop's Fables bring their imagination and inimitable style to depict a unique and magical world that has its origins firmly rooted in the culture of ancient Persia, India and Arabia.

When his numbers in the Persian Carpet Sweepstakes refuse to come up and he has no luck with the local camel races, landing his own cave of exotic treasures with a genie to boot seems like the answer to everything for work-shy Ali Baba. However the dastardly Chief Thief and his 39 assistants - who stole the loot in the first place - have other ideas and they have a deadly scheme to get their booty back. Will he out-wit them?
