They get to know each other, but soon they are discovered and Aladdin is thrown into a dungeon. An old man gets the attention of Aladdin because he promises of great treasure if he goes into a cave. Aladdin agrees and heads into the dangerous cave, but what he finds is a lamp, and what he doesn’t know is there is a genie who grants 3 wishes inside.
