Hezar Afsan (One Thousand Myths) is a cut out animation based on the 11th-century Shahnameh, the book of kings by Ferdowsi. This animation is about a Deev (a white demon), who comes out of the mountain and attacks the city, stealing away the king. Finally, Rostam, the hero, finds the mountain which the Deev came from and saves the king.
