The warriors are brave and fierce but the object of their interest is Sam Carter. In their society, woman are not permitted to show their face in public and are not even allowed to speak, on pain of death.

He is refused as Nya has been promised to another chieftain in marriage but Sam tries to get the young woman to refuse the marriage and go against her father's wishes.The result is that Nya is sentenced to death by stoning.
