Synopsis
When their plane crashes in the Sahara desert, the survivors - some businessmen and some British military officers - must find a way to survive the sun, the lack of water, and marauding Arabs. Somehow, they manage to repair the plane, using one engine, and take the risk that it will get them out of there.
