Storyboard Text

  • Shahrayar & Shahzaman were brothers who ruled separate kingdoms.
  • Shahrayar ruled in India & Indochina...
  • and Shahzaman ruled in Samarkand.
  • Shahrayar missed Shahzaman so he sent his vizier to request a visit.
  • Shahzaman wanted to say farewell to his wife and was shocked when he found her with a kitchen boy.
  • After murdering his wife & the kitchen boy, Shazaman went to the vizier's camp & informed him that they must depart immediately.
  • When Shahzaman arrived, Shahrayar showered him with generous gifts including his own private quarters in the palace next to his.
  • Shahzaman kept himself busy spending time with his brother during the day but found it difficult not to think of the betrayal he suffered at night.
  • Shahrayar couldn't help but notice Shahzaman's sadness which he attributed to homesickness so he invited Shahzaman to go hunting but he declined.
  • Shahzaman was taking in the beauty of the garden from his bedroom window when his sister-in-law entered with 20 female slaves.
  • He could not believe his eyes when half of them removed their clothes & were in fact men who proceeded to have sex with the other slaves...
  • ...and then his sister-in-law summoned another slave named Ma'Sud to have sex with her.
  • To his shock & surprise, this was the moment that Shahzaman started to feel better because he realized he was “no longer alone in [his] misery” (611).
