A long time ago in the city of Cordoba lived three naughty boys.  Rashid, who was a Muslim, Samuel, who was Jewish, and Miguel who was Christian, annoyed the good citizens of Cordoba.  They jumped in the flower beds and over the fountains.  They threw ripe oranges at people passing by.  The towns people tried to catch them but they were too fast.  But they were finally caught when they threw ripe oranges at a very important man.  They were sentenced to work in the gardens of the city mosque.  As they did, they began to realize how beautiful it was and how much it meant to the citizens of Cordoba -- not just the Muslims but the Jews and Christians as well.  Years later when a new king ordered the destruction of the mosque, it is up to the three friends to try to save it.
