After fleeing from Chandra (Walther Reyer), the Maharaja of Eschnapur, the doomed lovers Harald Berger (Paul Hubschmid) and Seetha (Debra Paget) are rescued by sympathetic desert villagers, only to be later given up for ransom. Seetha is captured and sent back to Eschnapur, where she must perform a death-defying temple dance to prove her innocence. Meanwhile, Chandra’s half-brother, Ramigani (René Deltgen), incites a revolt against the Maharaja and uses both Berger and Seetha as pawns in his plot to seize the throne.
