I wish you back into the lamp!

I wish you into the lamp!

I think this is it.

Are you sure?

Well, you can

never be sure.

Great. It's intact.


It's sealed.

That means there's something

valuable inside.


There's nothing...

Move. Move.

I found something.

What is it?

Let's see.

Who tied this?

What, all this work

for a book?

Must be worth something

if he was buried with it.

"Rage hums its deadly song. "

Ahh! There's nothing!

I'll take this to Shahira.

He sometimes buys old books.

He's a thief.

Maybe so.

But his money spends the same.

I get half.

- Don't move.

- What are you doing?

All right, fine.


What was that?

The guardian of the tomb.

Guarding what?

Let's go.


You're late.

I'm not very happy about that.

It'll cost you more.

Go bargain with Shahira

without me. You'll do better.

Bad blood.

It's Shahira. Blood

has nothing to do with money.

- Except when it's his money.

- All right, wait here.


Aladdin. You have something

for me?

If there were any other buyer

in Vardana, I wouldn't be here.

But there isn't,

so we're here.

So your expedition

must have been profitable.

Show me.

Well, no jewels or gold

this time.

Only this.

Tsk. A stained,

moldy old book?

How am I gonna sell this?


I'm sure some poor scholar

would shell out

a few drachmas for this.

For curiosity's sake, of course.



Twenty gold coins

for a moldy, old book?

That must be some book.

It's a worthless antique.

But still, there are buyers.

I think I'll keep it.

- Aladdin, we had a deal.

- You had a deal.

I'll bring it back

when I finish with it.

I could do with a good read.

My offer might not be open then.

I'll take that chance.


Find me Luca.

Don't bring him here to the

market. Bring him to my tent.

- Where's my cut?

- I didn't sell it.


Shahira agreed

to 20 gold pieces.

No bargaining. No haggling.

Twenty gold pieces?

Why didn't you take it?

Think about it. If he's willing

to pay what we wanted,

no questions asked,

this book must be the key

to something valuable.

All right,

then let me see the book.

Not here. Come on.

It seems to be the description

of a journey of sorts.

There's even a map

drawn inside the back cover.

You think it'll lead us

to treasure?

"Seekers seek.

"Granters grant.

"May the desires of your heart

be yours.

"The stones do keep,

the greatest treasure

lies in deep. "

The stones.

The stones of Mustafa?


Somebody went to a great deal

of trouble to hide this book

inside an obscure

sarcophagus hidden up a mountain

and guard it

with a two-headed serpent.

Wait, look, our markings.

"A lock for which four keys

are made.

Each one opens the door. "

Khalil and Shifa

also bear these signs.

Why are our markings

in an ancient book?

I don't know.

I'm gonna

ask somebody who does.

If you think Khalil is going to

tell you, you're mistaken.

He won't talk

about his past or ours.

If that book has anything to do

with either, he won't tell you.

It's worth a try.

I'll meet up with you later.

Gather the men,

we're going treasure-hunting.

You're getting good, Shifa.

If I were that good,

you'd be the one pinned.

Well, I'm stronger than you

and I've been training longer.

- Where's Luca?

- Gathering men for an expedition.

- I'm going with you.

- No.

I fight better than Luca.

He drinks and gambles,

a woman just has to smile

for him to lose his head.

- He's reliable.

- I'm unreliable?

- You judge too harshly.

- You'll be sorry.

I'll be careful.

Aladdin. Welcome home.

Thank you, Khalil.

Was your search successful?

I'm not sure.

I had hoped to bring

you money for the orphans.

But I may have the chance

at something much bigger.

Something that could

actually put you and them

in a building that keeps the

warmth in and the rain out.

Well, come. Let's go inside.

You're coming with us.

Luca. Why didn't you

come with Aladdin earlier?

I wanted to see you alone

- To tell you the good news.

- Good.

I won a few coins,

I want to apply it

against the debt that I owe you.

Nice. Where is it?

- It's right there.

- Give it to me.

This doesn't even put a dent

in what you owe me!

I need a little more time.

I gave you more time,


Your time is up.

I'm going to take your head

and put it on a pike

outside my tent as a warning.

Shahira, I will pay you.

- Take his head off.

- What...? No, wait.

No. Please.

No. Please don't kill me!

Burn this book.

Wipe it from your memory.


Or throw it down the well.

Or bury it in the deepest part

of the forest

where no one

will ever find it again.


What is this?

Just this once, Aladdin.

Don't ask why.

Trust me.

Forget you ever saw this book

and this map.

Don't kill me. No!

Wait, wait, wait.

What could you possibly do

for me?

I'll do anything.


I will do it.

There is something.

I can do it.

Please, just spare me.

You and Aladdin are close, yes?

Yes, we both grew up

in Khalil's orphanage.

He's like a brother

to me.

Would you betray

your own brother?

Would you?



I have never discouraged you

from seeking your fortune.

But this time I'm telling you,

don't go.

We're tied to this book,

you know what it is

and you're not saying.

Our marks.

Shifa, fire. Luca, earth.

You, water. Me, air.

If you wanna stop me

walking out of here right now,
