The poor people of the city are aided by Karim, the thief of Baghdad [Steve Reeves]. When Prince Osmer [Arturo Dominici] comes to the palace to seek the hand of Amina, [Georgia Moll] the Sultan's daughter, Karim ties him up so he can steal jewels from the courtiers while impersonating Prince Osmer.
