Once upon a time there were two children nursed by the same woman, Jenane. Jenane’s son, dark-haired, dark-eyed Asmar, and Azur, the blonde, blue-eyed son of a nobleman, were as close as brothers. They grew up with Jenane’s tales of the Djinn-fairy awaiting release by a heroic prince, before Azur’s father brutally separated the boys.
Still obsessed with the Djinn-fairy, grown Azur ventures to find Asmar years later, and finds that he too longs for the release of the Djinn-fairy. The two youths turn rivals as they compete for the same quest.
