Synopsis

Among the bustling markets of eighteenth century Cairo, the cityโ€™s outcasts eke out a living swindling rich Ottoman nobles and foreign invaders alike.

But alongside this new world the old stories linger. Tales of djinn and spirits. Of cities hidden among the swirling sands of the desert, full of enchantment, desire and riches. Where magic pours down every street, hanging in the air like dust.

Many wish their lives could be filled with such wonder, but not Nahri. She knows the trades she uses to get by are just tricks and sleights of hand: thereโ€™s nothing magical about them. She only wishes to one day leave Cairo, but as the saying goesโ€ฆ

Be careful what you wish for.
