Abu is a young sweet-seller in a Sahara oasis, and he is desperate to own a horse. His family is poor, and Abu will never be able to afford a horse on his own. However, when he discovers a plot to overthrow the Caid of Yelten, his fortunes change. He ends up in a Berber stronghold in the Aures Mountains, and escapes with El Mansur, an Arab stallion every Arab leader wants.
