Baghdad NightA Baghdadi taxi driver is jinxed into eternal bondage by a mysterious woman.

A young taxi driver picks up a mysterious woman at a street corner in the old quarters of Baghdad at dusk. She asks him to drive her to one of the oldest graveyards. She requests him to take her back to the same place after her visit.
She gives him a small golden bell as fare. Although he is unhappy about the situation and his fare, he is compelled to come back the next day and the day after. The woman warns him not to follow her into the graveyard. On the third night, he is unable to resist his curiosity and follows her. He finds her next to one of the graves. He flees the graveyard in terror after looking into her face. Thinking he has escaped her influence, he finds himself trapped in eternal servitude.
