Based on the classic thousand-year-old Persian poem, ‘The Book of Kings’.
The Last Fiction presents the story of upstart ruler Zahak’s treacherous rise to the throne in ancient Persia, and naive Afaridoun, the young hero who saves the kingdom and people from the darkness. Zahak, who makes a Faustian pact to control the throne, is now haunted by his evil deeds, and his nightmares hold a prophecy of how a young man he wronged in the past will rise up against him. Afaridoun, however, must first conquer his own inner demons before he can battle Zahak’s dark forces and restore peace to the kingdom.
