Storyline

Jessica, a young British girl, goes off to Arabia with her father to be with her fiancé when he's called there suddenly on diplomatic duty. On a tourist journey she's kidnapped by what appears to be a Beduion tribe and sold into the harem of the Sultan. The man that took her captive is not actually a Beduion but an Oxford educated revolutionary who traded Jessica for the release of his friends from the Sultan's prison. As her fiancé struggles to free her from the harem he inadvertently hires the very man who put her there to get her out. Meanwhile, Jessica is fending of the Sultan's advances and coming to know a new way of life. Romance, political intrigue, and the jealousies of the harem all threaten Jessica's narrow view of the world. If she escapes will she actually be able to return to life in Victorian England?

Goofs

When Tarik is approaching the train, he is holding an Arab musket in the air over his head by the fore-stock, but the soundtrack plays several groups of rapid-fire shots even though his finger is never on the trigger, plus the fact that it's a musket and can only fire one or two shots a minute.

Loved It!!!
18 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

I loved it. Art Malik was dreamy and I loved their first stare, WOW!!!! The plot was good. The acting great, it was a Romantic film. I stayed up for the 3 showings. This is one movie ABC has not repeated and that alone was soo disappointing, ABC aired it. In 86', I wondered about that. What year and if I could find it and Order it.
