The hen-pecked cobbler Marouf decides to join a group of sailors and travels to Khiatan where he pretends to be a rich merchant awaiting the arrival of his caravan. The sultan is impressed and offers him the hand of his daughter Saamcheddine. Marouf's deception is discovered and he flees, followed by the princess, who has fallen in love with him. They find a mysterious ring which gives Marouf power over a magician. The magician grants Marouf's wish for the caravan he boasted about to become reality. The sultan is appeased, pardons Marouf and allows him to marry Saamcheddine.
