Every night Scheherazade tells King Shahryar unfinished tales to continue them the following night, hence defying his promise of murdering his new wives after their wedding night. But these are not the stories in the book, they are based on what happened in Portugal at the production of the film.

MUBI's take

Three volumes, three unidentified filmic objects of uncommon beauty, and three instant classics of contemporary cinema. Welcome to Miguel Gomes’s outstanding masterpiece. A luminous vision of modern Portugal infused with inspiration from the timeless folk tales of the Arabian Nights.
