Andrew Trebin is a young teacher who takes a teaching post in Colonel Gaddafi's Libya, though he soon becomes disillusioned with his work and life in an unfamiliar country. Unable to leave the country as his employer is holding his passport, a beautiful young secretary at the school offers to smuggle him to freedom in Egypt - but at a price. The enchanting Salma is desperate to go to England to train as a doctor, and marriage to Andrew would enable her to pursue her dreams. The young teacher, by now besotted by Salma, agrees to marry the young Muslim girl to allow her to fulfil her desire.
