Dr Alithea Binnie is an academic – content with life and a creature of reason. While in Istanbul attending a conference, she happens to encounter a Djinn who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom.
This presents two problems. First, she doubts that he is real and second, as a scholar of mythology, she knows all the cautionary tales of wishes gone wrong.
The Djinn pleads his case by telling her fantastical stories of his past. Eventually, she is beguiled and makes a wish that surprises them both.
