Arabs resentful of the creation of Israel carry out terrorist missions in this action drama set in 1949. They harass the Jews with land mines, robberies, and general chaos in a wave of reactionary righteous indignation over their displacement. David Opantoshu plays the venerable Arab leader Daoud, who calls for the murder of a local policeman suspected of selling out to the Jews. Susan (Diane Baker) is an American girl who travels to Israel to pay respects at the grave of her sweetheart who died in the fight for Israeli independence. She later falls for the Jewish boy Dan (Tom Bell).
