Prince Fazil, an Arab chieftain, marries Fabienne, a carefree Parisienne, but once she is subjected to the rigors of desert life, she rebels and in doing so precipitates a quarrel. Prince Fazil leaves her for his beloved desert and establishes a harem. Her jealousy aroused, Fabienne returns to him and compels the desert maidens to disperse.
