A breathtaking cinematic shadow play for all ages. Inspired by the ancient Persian epic Shahnameh (The Book of Kings), this action-packed tale follows star-crossed lovers of old Persia. Zaul, a white-haired boy raised in the wild by a mythical bird and Rudabeh, the granddaughter of the dreaded Serpent King, fall in love at first glance. Their young impetuous romance takes them on many perilous adventures to finally receive blessings for their union. An army of 160 hand made puppets, shadow casters and digital backgrounds come together to create a “live animation” experience you won’t soon forget.
