In this romantic adventure, a wealthy Arab sheik has a reputation for breeding some of the fastest horses in the world. Meanwhile, the spoiled daughter of a corkscrew magnate bets her British betrothed that she can find a horse that can beat any nag in his stable. She and her father then set out for Arabia to find the famous sheik. They are accompanied by her eccentric aunt and ill-mannered cousin. The Americans are classically ugly in their attitudes and when they meet the traditionally garbed sheik, they mistake him for a mere porter and desert guide. To get his revenge and teach the brutish Americans something about cultural sensitivity, he kidnaps the girl and then leaves her alone in the desert. To add insult to injury, he later grabs her off the alter during her wedding and marries her himself.
