A pilot at San Kenyon Airport finds himself with a charter job on his hands. With a sand storm blowing across the dessert, the window of time for safe flying is rapidly closing. Being forced down, the pilot finds himself in the darkness, and what he believes has only been 2 hours has really been 3 days. Not only that, he’s a prisoner of a tribe of natives, and is scheduled to face a cage of leopards.
The death sentence is due to a misunderstanding that has led the natives to believe the white man has been meeting the native princess on secret rendezvous in the desert, despite her impending marriage. Can he convince the chief otherwise?
Since being downed, and from the affects of the sand storm, the pilot has been blinded, and can’t tell where he is. As the native drums beat, his eyesight begins to come back, but are his threats to his life decreased:? Complications increase as the native superstitions grow. Is there any hope to escape from the pit, and the beasts that await there?
