With a visit from Faisal imminent, Ahmed is determined to trump his cousin once and for all with a special new addition to his harem. Tired of brown-eyed beauties with dark hair he sends his hapless servant Saleem on a quest for a blue-eyed blonde. A magic carpet comes to Saleem's rescue and transports him to modern day London but the bombshell he returns with has no intention of fitting into Ahmed's plans. His life is turned upside down in this comedy of sexes and cultures with consequences he could never have imagined.
