Before an exquisitely ornate facade, an Egyptian sorcerer notices an iridescent little beetle creeping up the wall. Without delay, he plucks it off, and as a flaming ceremonial cauldron appears at his command, he tosses the insect into it which immediately bursts into flames. As a result, much to the wizard's amazement, this ritual transforms the beetle into a six-winged fairy in the body of a beautiful young woman, who now hovers effortlessly in mid-air. Delighted by the wondrous creature's fascinating and haunting repertoire, the awed conjurer will attempt to tame the magnificent being, but is his sorcery potent enough?
