About the story
Tom Dolly, an American tourist and a man before bankruptcy, is abandoned by his girl-friend in the town of Korčula. It was his last straw, and he overnights accidentally at the birth place of Marco Polo. The ghost of Marco Polo, discontent for not being buried in his native town, appears in the house in the dead of night. Their unexpected encounter results in the return to the 13th century, at the time when Marco Polo returned from China into Europe. The master of the world, the Mongol ruler Kublai-khan, entrusted him with the task of bringing as the wife the 17-year old Chinese princess Cocachin to the 60-year old Persian khan Argun..
