Along the way Hafiz falls in love with his muse the beautiful Nabat, meets his Spiritual Master, marries and has a son. He teaches at University and befriends the liberated princess Jahan Khatun (Iran's greatest female poet) after being a student of the outrageous poet/jester Obeyd Zakani.

Eventually Mubariz's son Shah Shuja takes control but tragedy strikes Hafiz and Jahan, and Nabat must suffer separation.

God-Realization or else!
