No qual Xerazade narra como a desolação invadiu os homens: “Oh venturoso Rei, fui sabedora de que uma juíza aflita chorará em lugar de ditar a sua sentença, na noite de três luares. Um assassino em fuga vagueará pelas terras interiores durante mais de quarenta dias e teletransportar-se-à para fugir à Guarda, sonhando com putas e perdizes. Lembrando-se de uma oliveira milenar, uma vaca ferida dirá o que tiver a dizer e que é bem triste! Moradores de um prédio dos subúrbio salvarão papagaios e mijarão em elevadores, rodeados por mortos e fantasmas; mas também por um cão que…”. E vendo despontar a manhã, Xerazade calou-se.

[In Portugal – one European country in crisis – a film director proposes to build fictional stories from the miserable reality he is immersed in. However, failing to find meaning in his work, he cowardly runs away and leaves the beautiful Scheherazade to stand in his shoes.

Therefore Scheherazade organises the stories she tells the King in three volumes. She begins like this: “It hath reached me, O auspicious King, that in a sad country among all countries…”.
Volume 2, The Desolate One
In which Scheherazade tells of how desolation invaded men: “It hath reached me, O auspicious King, that a distressed Judge will cry instead of giving out her sentence on a night when all three moons are aligned. A runaway murderer will wander through the land for over forty days and will teletransport himself to escape the Guard while dreaming of prostitutes and partridges. A wounded cow will reminisce about a thousand-year-old olive tree while saying what she must say, which will sound none less than sad! The residents of a tower block in the suburbs will save parrots and piss inside lifts while surrounded by dead people and ghosts; including in fact a dog that…”. And seeing the morning break, Scheherazade fell silent.
- “Damned tales! If things continue this way my daughter will surely end up with her throat slit!” – the Grand-Vizier, Scheherazade’s father, thinks in his palace in Bagdad.]
