There's a handsome young Englishman who vows to take Marisa away with him to a new life ... the sensual Turkish captain who is prepared to relinquish his harem and make her his only wife ... the Emperor Napoleon, who takes her as his mistress ... and the unscrupulous Don Pedro Arteaga, the man her father had chosen for her.
