Two youngsters find their way into a derelict cinema and discover a computer boffin there who is able to bring their fantasies to life on screen. The teamwork betwen the children and the boffin produces miraculous results - and a trio of tales worthy of Scheherazade. The tales on the screen are rendered in silhouette animation by the French animators. The linking material in the cinema by the British animators is in a contrasting style of traditional cel animation, which renders the cinema interior in sumptious colour.
