Plot Summary:

Kamran (Adam Echahly) is a 12-year-old boy who discovers his ancestor is the 11th Century mathematician, astronomer and poet of Persia: Omar Khayyam. Although the story of his great ancestor has survived in his family's lore for generations, the tale is now at the risk of extinction. It is Kamran's job to keep it alive. As he hears the story, he visualizes an epic past. Meanwhile, we are introduced to significant historical figures such as the brilliant Omar Khayyam (Bruno Lastra), Hassan Sabbah (Christopher Simpson) and the powerful Sultan Malikshah (Moritz Bleibtreu). Through the story of Khayyam, Kamran learns about love, loss and loyalty. Vanessa Redgrave co-stars.
