Long ago in Persia, there lived a kind and generous king named Balash. Each day he opened the doors of his palace to share with the people his most prized possession: a diamond that cast light on the walls, in every color of the rainbow. Then one day a thief stole the jewel, and the kingdom was thrown into despair. It was up to a small boy named Payam, an apprentice in the street of weavers, to think of a way to bring back the light of the diamond.
