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.

A Part 2?
6 December 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wanted to see a Part 2 to know the fate of Jessica & Tarik. Art Malik and Nancy Travis made me want more. There was a TV

Series but how was it written? Mr. Art Malik was outstanding and I just wanted more of him in his role of Tarik with Nancy Travis as Jessica. This movie had me asking for more.
