An adventure set in 1905, in which the life of a young Hindu prince is threatened by a siege of a British fortress in India's north-west frontier province. Captain Scott, a British officer, rescues the boy and sets off with a group of fugitives on a perilous journey across rebel territory, fighting off the double dangers of marauding tribesmen and a traitor in their midst.
