An adventurous American everybody calls Tex and his partner, an Englishman named Ronald, are foiled in their bid to steal Tehran's precious jewels. In the desert, they join up with four others, including a baron, to plot another heist.

They have the good fortune of meeting Zari, the beautiful mistress of the infamous bandit Malik, who is after a valuable amulet. So is the man who wants to claim Malik's place in the eyes of all, Nazar, but all does not go well. Ronald is captured and tortured, Nazar shot, and Zari is soon forced to decide if she wishes to continue on to wherever fate takes Tex next.
