However, before that happens, Rajab's sons, Saeed (Mohammad Hemayoun) and Saad (Bahman Mofid), take the chicken and consume its heart and liver on their journey.

Separated on their paths, Saad enters a city and becomes its ruler, while Saeed finds a stash of gold coins. Unfortunately, a woman (Parvin Malekooti) and her maid (Shahnaz) steal Saeed's coins. Saeed finds a magical hat and stick, and during a hunting expedition, he encounters Mehtab (Marjan), the daughter of another city's Amir. However, Amir conspires to separate Mehtab from Saeed, and she ends up imprisoned in her room.

In Saeed's absence, Mehtab cries so much that she loses her eyesight. When Saeed returns and uses his magical stick to restore Mehtab's sight, he is captured and tortured. However, with the help of his magical tools, Saeed saves Mehtab, and in the end, Amir agrees to have his brother marry Mehtab.
