In a single magical day, in eleventh century Baghdad, a beggar-poetrises from poverty to become emir, defeats an evil wazir, saves the kingdom and helps two lovers come together. It may be luck the result of masterful plotting...or it could be Kismet. This star-studded film of the hit Broadway musical tells the story of the love between the daughter of a beggar and Baghdad's young caliph, the nefarious plot of a despotic wazir to overthrow the caliph, and of the wazir's wife's lust for the wily poet.
