Inspired by the medieval book «The Ring of the Dove», Nacer Khemir uses the story of the budding calligrapher Hassan to interweave tales about the different facets of love, which he turns into stunning images. The fanciful fables, in which djinns and visions are an accepted part of reality, are reminiscent of «1001 Nights»; the picturesque settings bear testimony to the glory of Andalusian-Arab culture.
