L'Upupa

This story, like a fairytale, tells of an old man who is so sad when a hoopoe fails to come home that he sends his three sons out to get back the gold-feathered bird, L’Upupa. But only Prince Al Kasim bravely takes up this task, which takes him to distant countries. He constantly has to survive new adventures and overcome demons until he finds the bird, a princess falls in love with him and he can set off on the path back to his home. But anyone who thinks that once he has fulfilled his father’s task, with his bride at his side, Al Kasim will no longer leave his home, is wrong – at least one more adventure still awaits him …
