Freelancer camerawoman Tally is wandering the world taking pictures of children to publish in her book. She's photographing in a small village near the desert when she's carried off by a group of horsemen and confined in one of their tents. They seem to suspect her of being a spy. Without letting her explain everything, they take her precious camera, and the group's leader haughtily declares to her, "You will never go home. You will marry me and live here."
