The sailor of legend is framed by the goddess Eris for the theft of the Book of Peace, and must travel to her realm at the end of the world to retrieve it and save the life of his childhood friend Prince Proteus.
A wild stallion is captured by humans and slowly loses the will to resist training. Yet throughout his struggles for freedom, the stallion refuses to let go of the hope of one day returning home to his herd.
A Persian sailor named Sinbad is on a quest to find the magical legendary Book of Peace, a mysterious artifact that Eris, the Greek wicked goddess of chaos, has ultimately framed him for stealing! If he fails on this quest, his childhood friend Prince Proteus of Syracuse will take Sindbad's death penalty, while Eris gains a desired foothold of power in the world of mortals. Written by

Since when is Sinbad a citizen of Syracuse? And what does he have to do with ancient Greek and Roman Gods? The producers of this crap should sit down and read one of the best stories ever told in the most entertaining collection of tales - the Arabian nights - to where Sinbad belongs. The only Arabic/Islamic thing about this Sinbad is his goatie and his brown eyes. What I don't really understand is why the producers needed the name recognition of Sinbad to tell a totally uninteresting story about an obscure chimera character living in a confusing time that exhibits elements of the Islamic empire with that of the Roman empire and the Greek city states. What a waste of effort.
