Hodja lives in Pjort, a small dessert village in Bulgislav, together with his mother and father and his goat Raya. Pjort is a nice and interesting place, but very small, and Hodja is dreaming about the big adventurous world beyond the mountains on the horizon. Hodja´s father is not supportive of his son’s dreams. He insists that Hodja stays put. The world is not adventurous but dangerous and folks from a small town are not supposed to mingle with people of the outside world. Hodja is supposed to follow in his father’s footsteps, and become a tailor.
When Hodja suddenly gets an unforeseen chance he grabs it with both hands. On a fantastic flying carpet, given to him by old El Faza, Hodja, accompanied by his faithfull friend Raya the goat, flies towards the sun, on a mission to bring back El Faza´s young grandchild.
