After their caravan is attacked and their respective families butchered by Arab marauders, teenagers David (Willie Aames) and Sarah (Phoebe Cates) flee across the desert. But the desert is filled with danger from the elements, animals and the unwholesome appetite of the Jackal (Tuvia Tavi), a sheik who wants Sarah for himself. However, the desert also holds temptation and love. David and Sarah hide out in an oasis and build a life for themselves, discovering each other in new ways.
