In the Victorian period, two teenagers, David and Sarah, travel with a caravan from Baghdad to Damascus. At an oasis, the white slave agent known as the Jackal raids them, mainly to add the beautiful young Sarah to his harem. Only David and Sarah narrowly escape, and all the others are slayed in the massacre. Their flight leads them to a beautiful oasis - their paradise - where they discover love and sex. However, the Jackal has not given up on Sarah yet, and David must lure him to his death, or be killed by him. Written by

Phoebe Cates' film debut. Cates was 17 years of age when she starred in this movie. The film was of two movies that Cates starred in 1982, the other was Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982). Cates not only is one of the film's two leads but was also selected as a performer to sing the movie's theme song, the "Paradise Theme". Cates refused to promote the film due to the depiction of nudity in the movie. According to Willie Aames, Cates was very upset by this. See more »

Like most of the others, I found a lot of this movie rather trite. I don't blame Aames or Cates for this; I thought they were good actors who did their best with terrible material. The plot is something straight out of a trashy romance novel, which could have worked with better writing but the script is a mess. However, lost in this mediocre feature film is a great 30 minute soft-core porn. The sex scenes are highly erotic, and the nude scenes are done with much better camera work and production than you would typically have in a skin flick. I'm particularly fond of the cave shower scene, where Phoebe Cates positively scorches the camera with her hotness.
