Kamran is a 12-year-old boy in the present day who discovers that his ancestor is the 11th-century mathematician, astronomer and poet of Persia, Omar Khayyam. The story has been passed down in his family from one generation to another, and now it is his responsibility to keep the story alive for future generations. His dying brother, Nader, begins telling him the story as we flash back from the modern day to the epic past where the love that Omar Khayyam and Hassan Sabbah share for a beautiful woman separates them from their eternal bond of friendship. Throughout Nader's telling of the story to Kamran, we periodically return to the present day to reveal the frailty of life and how stories, such as ours easily fade with the passing of each generation. Once Nader dies, Kamran goes on a journey back to Iran (via England) in search of the ending of the story from his grandfather.
