Three generations of the British family Lindforth are obsessed with building a road from Kohara to Hindu Kush. Dick is the latest Lindforth to undertake the monumental project, but his efforts are impeded by the evil Shere Ali (Tony Fraser). The first two generations of Lindforths were killed by superstitious natives. After Shere is spurned by a merry widow who takes his gift of pearls, he goes on a rampage against the road crew. Only by some last minute military heroics is Dick able to capture his adversary and negotiate the terms upon which the road may be completed.
