The Blind Man with Starry Eyes

An ambitious tyrant asks a wise old man in his kingdom how he can become even more powerful. Although he insists, he can only elicit one answer: “Look at the sky and count the stars.”

When he realizes the old man will not give him more clues, the tyrant follows his advice and starts counting the stars in the sky. Gradually, they forge a relationship that changes the tyrant’s quest for domination into a quest for knowledge.
