Kamran is a 12 year-old boy in the present day that discovers his ancestor is the 11th Century Mathematician, Astronomer, and Poet of Persia: Omar Khayyam. Although the story of his great ancestor has survived in his family's lore for generations, the tale is now at the risk of extinction. It is Kamran's job to keep it alive. As Kamran hears the story, he visualizes an epic past. Meanwhile, we are introduced to significant historical figures such as the brilliant Omar Khayyam, the diabolical Hassan Sabbah (the original creator of the sect of Assassins) and the powerful Sultan Malikshah.
