No qual Xerazade duvida que ainda consiga contar histórias que agradem ao Rei, dado que o que tem para contar pesa três mil toneladas. Por isso foge do palácio e percorre o Reino em busca de prazer e encantamento. O seu pai, o Grão-Vizir marca encontro com ela na roda gigante, e Xerazade retoma a narração: “Oh venturoso Rei, fui sabedora que em antigos bairros de lata de Lisboa, existia uma comunidade de homens enfeitiçados que, com rigor e paixão, se dedicava a ensinar pássaros a cantar…”.
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. She will require enthusiasm and courage so as not to bore the King with sad stories of this country! As nights go past, restlessness leads to desolation and in turn to enchantment. 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 3, The Enchanted One
In which Scheherazade doubts that she will still be able to tell stories to please the King, given that what she has to tell weighs three thousand tonnes. She therefore escapes from the palace and travels the Kingdom in search of pleasure and enchantment. Her father, the Grand-Vizier, arranges to meet her at the Ferris wheel, and Scheherazade resumes her narration: “Auspicious King, in old shanty towns of Lisbon there was a community of bewitched men who, in all rigour and passion, dedicated themselves to teaching birds to sing…”. And seeing the morning break, Scheherazade fell silent.]
