An old and lonely caliph lives in a ramshackle palace. He is henpecked by his harem, a group of large women who snore loudly. One night the caliph decides to escape. He gets no further than the palace gate before he meets a gang of robbers breaking in. He manages to distract the robber chief's attention by showing him the harem. At the sight of the women the robbers become so excited that they chase the whole harem back to the bedroom and a serious party begins.
