Here is the official synopsis of the film:
Dr. Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton) is an academic – content with life and a creature of reason. While attending a conference in Istanbul, she meets a Djinn (Idris Elba) who offers her three wishes in exchange for her freedom. This poses two problems. First, she doubts he’s real and second, because she’s a specialist in history and mythology, she knows all the cautionary tales of wishes gone wrong. The Djinn pleads his case by telling him fantastic stories from his past. Eventually, she is seduced and makes a wish that surprises them both.
Three thousand years of nostalgia is set to open in theaters on August 31. The full trailer premieres for the film online this Friday ahead of the film’s Cannes Film Festival debut.
