    • Synopsis
    • Loosely inspired by the legendary story of Aesop.
      In this version, Aesop is a poor African refugee fleeing through a Middle Eastern country at war.
      He is sold as a slave to a wealthy trader and philosopher.
      Thanks to his brilliant mind and a special relation with animals (who appear as animation that only he and the audience can see), he gets a notorious reputation and is invited by one of the greatest ruler of the region.
      Unfortunately he does not follow his own advice, which is the source of his downfall.
