Based in Ethiopia, Egyptian pilot Anouk Turabi flies tourists to various archaeological points of interest until an English cousin calls for assistance. It appears that a young female relation of mixed heritage has been sold unwillingly to a husband in Yemen by her estranged father. Anouk plots and schemes, reconnoiters, and finally carries out a rescue-and-escape mission with help from a visiting female American photographer with whom she falls in love. Great travelog stuff, women's equality issues, and unusual adventure make for an exotic journey set in 1970. Rigid Islamic laws test them to the limits of their love and power in this death-defying thriller.
