"A visual dazzler that wears its fantasy elements lightly and with playful humour."—Raphael Abraham, Financial Times

"It’s a film that passionately believes in the power of storytelling and its ability to make sense of the world — but it’s also about the value of accepting love."—Iana Murray, London Evening Standard

"A passionate exploration of how image-making is inextricable from storytelling."—Derek Smith, Slant Magazine

Dr. Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton) is an academic -- content with life and a creature of reason. While in Istanbul attending a conference, she happens to encounter a Djinn (Idris Elba) who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom. This presents two problems. First, she doubts that he is real and second, because she is a scholar of story and mythology, she knows all the cautionary tales of wishes gone wrong. The Djinn pleads his case by telling her fantastical stories of his past. Eventually she is beguiled and makes a wish that surprises them both.
