Zarqaa Al-yamama is a girl, who lives in a village in Najd, was known for her strong eyesight, and used her gift to help Abu Musab, the town's mayor, protect the town from invaders, and this status she had
with the mayor upsets his son Musab. The years passed, and the mayor passed away, and his son Musab, who became a strong man, continued, despite his reservations, to rely on what the zarqaa sees, until she repeatedly gives them incorrect information about the expected invaders, and Musab and his men would go every time to confront the invaders but do not find them. Because of that, zarqaa loses her credibility, and Musab arrests her and locks her up after he finds his father's dagger hidden in her room, despite his mother's pleas. We discover later that It was Hamas Musab’s assistant who was plotting against Zarqa to help his fellow invaders get rid of her, as her warnings were what prevented them from invading the town. In the end, Zarqaa takes a rick and lures the invaders into quick sands outside the city, and Musab returns to save her and apologize.
