Golden City is in trouble: a scheming advisor has betrayed the King, a thief has made off with the city's magic relics, and an army is only days away from attack. Any hope of rescue must come from the king's daughter, Princess Yum Yum, and an unlikely hero in the form of Tack the Cobbler.
An animated tale set many years ago in the city of Baghdad, which is about to be besieged by the villainous One-Eye and his strongmen. But three magical gold balls that sit atop a tower watch over and protect the city. Thus One-Eye needs to gain possession of the globes, which he does thanks to a shady magician who desperately wants to marry Baghdad's beautiful Princess Yum-Yum. But coming to Baghdad's rescue is Tack, a simple, unassuming cobbler, who along with Yum-Yum sets out to re-acquire the orbs. Will this unlikely duo succeed -- and possibly fall in love in the process'
