A king has three sons and three daughters. On his deathbed he makes his sons swear that they will marry off their sisters to the first person who asks.

happens for the next two nights, until all the sisters are given away to mysterious strangers. The three brothers then decide to go and search for their sisters. Throughout their travels, each brother fights many headed serpents, the youngest tossing the serpent into a lake putting out their camp fire; so he has to go out alone to find fire, and using his wits he defeats nine giants that were terrorizing the region. Finally, he rescues a princess from the giant's village and is allowed to marry the princess. He lives in her castle and is allowed to visit any of the rooms, except one which is bound with chains (the One Forbidden Thing). When his wife is away from the castle, he goes inside the room and finds a man bound in chains. The man calls himself BASH TCHELIK and he begs for three glasses of water.

On the way, he discovers that his sisters were married to the Lords of Dragons, Hawks and Eagles. He visits their castles and is welcomed. But when he tells each Lord of his plans to defeat BASH TCHELIK, they try to stop him, telling him its impossible. The young prince refuses to listen, so each Lord gives him a magical feather that when burned will summon their armies. He tries to rescue his wife but each time, fails and loses his life. On the fourth time he fails again and dies, but not before he burns the feathers and his body is saved by his brothers-in-law. They resurrect him using the magical water from River Jordan. At this point the prince's wife learns that BASH TCHELIK cannot be killed, because his life is in a bird that is in a heart of fox in a forest of a high mountain. Helped by the Lords, the prince finally slays BASH TCHELIK and rescues his wife.
