A pretty lady in waiting from the court of King Louis XIV is sold to an evil Sultan. Angelique (Michele Mercier) is separated from her husband and suffers the indignities of sexual assault. She manages to survive until her husband (Robert Hossein) comes to her rescue. Although the Sultan's encampment is heavily armed, he manages to trick the greedy Sultan by giving him a mythical recipe to change ordinary ore into gold. The ending of the film leads one to believe there will be further adventures starring the beautiful and resourceful Angelique.
