Synopsis: In the beginning of the times, God created life into universe: light gave birth to angels, earth to men and fire to djin, creatures condemned to dwell in the void between the worlds. One who wakes a djin shall be given three wishes. Upon granting the third, an unholy legion of djins are freed through a doorway between the worlds upon the Earth. In 1127 A.D., in Persia, a sorcerer lures and traps a powerful Djinn in the stone of secret fire. In the present days, a drunken crane operator drops the valuable statue of Ahura Mazda over the assistant of Raymond Beaumont on the harbor, and one worker finds the huge and priceless opal red stone where Djin is seized. Alexandra Amberson, who works in an auction house, receives the stone for evaluation and accidentally awakes Djin. The evil creature is released later, charges the stone with people souls and feeds with their fears, while chasing Alexandra to force to make three wishes and unleash the demoniac fiends upon Earth.

Once, in a time before time,

God breathed life into the universe.

And the light gave birth to Angels.

And the earth gave birth to man.

And fire gave birth to the Djinn. Creatures

condemned to dwell in the void between the worlds.

One who wakes a Djinn shall be given three wishes.

Upon the granting of the third, the unholy legions

of the Djinn shall be freed upon the earth.

Fear one thing only in all that is...

Fear the Djinn.

Make your second wish.

Astonish Me, Djinn.

Show me wonders.

As you wish.

Help me, sorcerer.

Help me!

Free us wizard.

Remove this curse.

Help us.

Behold. By all the names of God,

This is not what I wanted!

Then wish it away exalted one.

Wish it away.


No more wishes.

I beg your majesty. Silence.

But my poor people.

I must...

Do you wish their fate on the entire world?

No more wishes. Please.

I warned you, wizard.

Hold your tongue.

I'm the wish, is all this creature needs.

Three wishes granted

to the one who woke him

lets him open the gateway between worlds.

New wonders, majesty.

New splendors.

And new and terrible masters.


(America, present day)

I'm surprised you're here in person Mr. Beaumont.

Paperwork is completely in order.

I waited it ten years, for this piece.

Antiquarian sculpture.

Eight foot tall.

A statue of the pre-Islamic God,

Ahura Mazda.

Under Islam, these gods were outlawed.

It's a miracle this was ever made.

Jesus Christ!

What the hell is he doing?

God dammit!

Does the word DUMB ASS

mean anything to you?

Watch that crate!

That's very expensive stuff!

Up yours...

...ahh sh*t!

Ughhhh. Ten years...

Hi. I can help you?

Maybe. I got a pawnshop down

the garment district,

5th and Tooley. The armpit of the universe.

Anyway, this came in this morning.

I had a hunch about it. Gave the guy a good price,

and I'd like you to appraise it.

Well, I think you made a smart move.

- Nick?

- Shannon?

I think we have something

Alex should take a look at.

Hello Betty!

Wow. This is ah... uh, this...

Which is its providence?


History. Where did it come from?

Oh! I bought it from a guy

he said he got it from his grandmother.

That's all I know.

I've heard that one before.

I tell you what. I want to have my

best appraiser take a look at this.

Shannon here is going to

fill out a receipt for you.

And thank you for, uh... choosing Regal Auctioneering.


I guess that's it.

I guess it is.

Nice game.

How is um... Rick ?

I don't know. I haven't spoken to him.

It's over.

What's it been now? Six and a half weeks?


Are you counting?

I thought. Maybe we, uh...

- What?

I thought maybe we could go out.

We go out all the time.

Yes, we go out all the time,

but we don't "Go Out".

There's a difference.

You are my best friend.

Do you know hard a friend is to find?

I dont wanna...

I do not want to mess that up.

Dates are a dime a dozen.

Aw come on now. It's so old.

It's a date.

Wait. You know what it is?

I'm just...

I'm just worried about losing

what little I've got left now.

Including you.

How about dinner and a movie?

How about hotdogs and a ball game?

Playing it safe, huh?

I am going out on a limb here.

I'm casting a spell on you here Alex.

Maybe it'll work.


I'll see you later.

I'll be at the lab.

Hey Alex.

Think about what I said.

My god. A fire opal this size.

It's magnificent.

How magnificent?

Excellent translucence.

No other color traces.

It's unique.

Oh that's a good word.

Oh I love that word.


Should that show quite a price? Yeah?

Oh yes.

- I am salivating. Get me a report ASAP?
