The often-drunk and likable poet, mathematician and philosopher Omar Khayyam (Cornel Wilde) spends his days indulging in intellectual and carnal pursuits, while being friends to both the rich & poor alike. Although happy on the outside, he secretly longs for his sweetheart who the Sultan keeps in his harem as his third wife. Khayyam also works in the Sultan's court as a mathematician who is drawing up a new calendar, but proves himself as an able advisor in other areas. However, when the Sultan dies, Omar stumbles upon a plot to kill off the Sultan's successor. The poet must then go off under the guise of researching his calendar and work to foil the plot. There he discovers a deadly assassin sect whose members are brainwashed by their leader into believing they are in paradise when they actually are in a hashish-induced zombie-like state!
