One day a poor fisherman finds a large and heavy chest. Caliph Harun al-Rashid buys the chest, thinking that it encloses a treasure. Instead, he finds out that it contains a woman’s corpse sliced into pieces. Following this discovery, the caliph orders his vizier Ja’far, to find the murderer within three years, otherwise he will be executed. Unfortunately, due to the lack of evidence, the vizier is not able to make a proper investigation and the fatal day looms closer. But Ja’far gets lucky: right before his execution two men arrive and claim to have committed the murder.
Who is the woman in the chest? Why was she murdered in such a brutal way? Does the fisherman have anything in common with the woman? Did the two men commit the murder? If not, then who? What will happen with Ja’far and will the mystery be solved?
