Danger lurks in many corners in this conventional, uninspired melodrama involving an excursion of Israelis into Jordanian territory for an ill-advised rescue mission. Dina (Daliah Lawie) has just come into Israel from Petra, a town of fascinating archaeological digs that lies over sixty miles from the Jordanian-Israeli border. That border is guarded by soldiers who shoot first and ask questions later. Dina's situation is urgent, she has to return to Petra with enough men to save her lover who is trapped inside one of the ancient tombs. She could not care less for their safety, yet perhaps because she is so incredibly gorgeous she manages to get a handful of men together to risk the daring excursion.
