This is the fourth in a series of Danish films based on a story by the children's novelist Ole Lund Kirkegaard, and unlike its predecessors, it is geared solely to the young tots. As the tale of the Turkish boy Hodja (David Bertelsen) and his magic, flying carpet takes off, Hodja has just been awarded the carpet by the village elders and he shares his rides with his girlfriend Emerald (Zuhal Ozdemir). The two are unceasingly chased by the nefarious Rat (Lars Junggreen), who is anxious to pirate the carpet as a way to curry the Sultan's favor. But the last laugh will be Hodja's -- the carpet does not run on high octane fuel, just the belief in magic by those who climb aboard.
