In this romantic melodrama, the rejected but cosseted wife of an important sheik lives in splendid isolation and travels around accompanied by her chauffeur/prison guard. She has become somewhat crazed by her isolation, and perverse and angry schemes are constantly boiling in her mind. She sees the possibility of escape in one of these imaginings. She advertises for a woman librarian to come to her desert palace. When the young Lebanese woman arrives, she is sadly surprised to discover that the residence contains no books in its library. Anything other than the Koran would be dangerous to own. Now at least one other woman is as frustrated as she is, and the sheik's wife can begin to craft more elaborate plans for escape.
