“The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time”is an action adventure film produced by Walt Disney Pictures and is adapted from a video game known as the same name. The story is mainly about the life of Dastan, a Persian prince and his adventure with Princess Tamina and a special dagger known as Dagger of Time. The dagger is so unique because it has a special power which allows the one who activates it to return to the past.
Unlike his elder brothers, Dastan is not the usual prince with royal blood. When he is young, he is adopted by the King Sharaman from the street. At first glance, the King admires Dastan' s courage for fighting for justice. Knowing that Dastan is an orphan, the King adopted him. Fifteen years afterwards, When Dastan’s brothers suspects that a nearby city, Alamut, has been cooperating with Persia's enemies, Dastan follows his troop and invades Alamut, and in the process he got a strange dagger which he decides to keep it as a trophy to prove his success in the war. However, at the celebrating feast, the King is killed as the gown he is wearing suddenly on fire. Since the gown is a gift from Dastan. He is blamed for murdering his father. Therefore, he has to escape from the castle and Tamina, the princess of Alamut who tries to get back the dagger, follows him. They stick together and continue their journey while the prince hope to claim back his innocence and the princess hope to approach him and get back the dagger. One night, Tamina tries to kill Dastan, and Dastan accidentally awakes the magic of the dagger and learns the secret of it which a present from God as it can rewind time and go back to the past using it with the Sand of Time. Dastan believes that his elder brother Tus knows about the secret and try to blame Dastan for murdering his father, so Tus will be able to get back the dagger, activates it and become the new king. But he has never thought that it is Nizam, who is King Sharaman 's brother who created all the problems. Nizam knows that King Sharaman' sons trust him. So, he misleads the Persian to attack Alamut, where they all believes that it has secretly dealt with Persian' enemies. So, he can meet his own goal—to use the massive sand glass in Alamut with the dagger, actuates it and go back to the scene that King Sharaman was facing a fierce lion and would not save him. As a result, he can become the King instead of his brother. Having known the truth, Dastan and Tamina fight hard against the evil and to protect the Dagger of Time which is the precious treasure of not only Alamut but also for the world because if the dagger is used with the massive sand glass, the sands would be released and the magic will destroy the world as the deal of leaving the dagger in the earth is not to abuse it.
