Tous les soirs, une fille, un garçon et un vieux projectionniste se retrouvent dans un cinéma qui semble abandonné, mais plein de merveilles. Les trois amis inventent, dessinent, se déguisent et s’imaginent les héros de contes merveilleux. Des profondeurs de la terre, aux confins de l'orient, ils rivalisent d'imagination pour incarner princesses et aventuriers : « La Maitresse des Monstres», « L’Ecolier-Sorcier », « Le Mousse et sa Chatte » et « Ivan Tsarévitch et la Princesse Changeante ».

L’Écolier-Sorcier
Un garçon cherche du travail. Un sorcier persan lui propose de lui apprendre son métier. Le garçon se met à la sorcellerie avec passion. Il ne se doute pas des projets horribles que le sorcier a pour un écolier doué…

Ivan Tsarévitch et la Princesse Changeante
Le père du jeune Tsarévitch est mourant. Seules trois prunes d’or du Tsar des Jardins pourraient le sauver. Mais il faut passer par tant d’épreuves, par tant de tsars cruels, et aussi par la Princesse Changeante, qui rend fous tous les hommes qui l’approchent...
