There. Want a bite?

Thank you very much, sir.

Purpose of your visit?

We have come for our horse.

This horse?


His real name is Shetan.

-I doubt that horse is for sale.

-We have not come to buy him.

He was stolen from us.

Shufi! Voyons.


We must act tonight.

Shetan, we meet again.


What is it, Alec?

There's something wrong with the Black.


What happened? Is he all right?

I think so.

What's the matter?

You're not getting enough attention.

This horse, Alec...

-Why don't you go back to bed?


You're not sleeping in the barn, Alec.

Sorry. You know the rules.

Come to bed now.

It's okay.

I'll be right back.

Mom, fire!


Get out of there, Alec, right now!


Alec, get out of there!

Get me the fire department, please!

Alec, are you all right?

-What happened?

-Yeah, I'm fine.

-I'll try and save my car.

-You be careful!

Try the other side.

Come on.

Easy, boy.

Son, get back. Please, get back.


-Get back.

-Get away from there!

-Is anyone in that barn?

No. Our beautiful barn!

-What happened?

-I don't know what happened.

The horse got away,

and then it burst into flames.

-How'd it start?

-Must be the paint cans.

We were painting the barn.

-Are you all right?

-I'm okay, and Alec is fine.

He let the horse out.




Poor Black.

Easy, boy.

Come on, Black!


Come on, Black.

I'm Abu Yakub Ben Ishak.

Shetan is our horse.

We are taking him back to Wadi Draa.

But you can't take him! He's mine!


I am sorry, child...

...but the horse must come with me.

The monster that started the fire...

...will stop at nothing

to prevent Shetan from coming home.

-But this is his home!

-His home is in the desert with us.

No! You can't take him!


Easy does it. Hold that rope.

That's it.


Alec, where are you?

Alec, can you hear me?

Yeah, Mom. I'm fine.

Don't worry about me, okay?

What do you mean?

Of course I'm worrying.



...I know where the Black is going.

I'm going after him.

Going after him?

What do you mean?

Alec, come back here.

Here it is. Wadi Draa.

Way out there in the desert like that?

Closest city is Casablanca.

Pan American has a clipper ship...

...which flies twice a week

from La Guardia.

Today and Friday at 5:00,

and it gets there in three days.

Thank you.



I want you to take a look

at the hydraulic lift.

-Where's your kid stationed now?

-He's in Frankfurt.

Kid, you don't belong out there.

You ain't allowed on that scaffolding.

Get back in the ship.

No, in the ship!

With the rest of the tour.

That's right. Inside.

-This plane is going to Casablanca, right?

-Yeah, that's right.

-Each engine's accessible for maintenance.

-You can go inside?

Right. A flight engineer can enter the

wing through a port on the flight deck...

...if emergency repairs are necessary.

But in six years it's never been needed.

Now, if you'd like to move forward...

The engines drive four Hamilton...

Yeah, I got it.

I'll be back up for the other case.

We could replace the whole door,

but just a nut'll do it.


Get out of there.

How long you been in there?

I don't know. I got in in New York.

How'd you get in there?

I just climbed in.

-Are you gonna eat that piece of bread?


'Cause if you're not, I'd like to have it.


Our stowaway.

If you were mine, I'd make

your bottom very sore, mon petit.

Be sure you don't leave these walls.

You're going back to your mother

on the clipper tomorrow.

Are there any horses around here?

A horse. Horses.

-Un cheval?

-Oui, un cheval.

-Magnifique, non?


C'est le cheval du colonel.

Oui! My cheval more big,

more magnifique.


The Shetan.


C'est bon.




I know you...

...from photographs

in American newspapers.

You won the big match race.

Come, look who we have here.

I've been hoping of news of Shetan.

-He was kidnapped.

-Yes, I know. By Sahid Ben Ishak.

-Do you know him?

-Never mind what I know.

What do you know?

What is this?

This is the symbol of the Uruk...

...simply the most powerful

tribe in the desert.

How did Ben Ishak and

Shetan leave America?

On a ship called the Casablanca.


I shall catch them in Sulaiyil.

We must leave immediately.

Who are you after? Black?

I am after victory.


Power to the Uruk

for the first time in history.

Start the motor.

You have been very helpful.

I scratched your back,

now you scratch mine.

-What does this mean?

-Where's Sulaiyil?

An oasis in the desert.

The only way to Wadi Draa.

Ben Ishak must stop there for water.

And now I must depart.

-Please take me with you.

-Peace be with you.


-Wait, look!

Where you got this?

-Why? You want it?

-I must have it, yes.

Then take me with you.

A deal?



I see you make great progress.

I will finish.

Le camion.

Trucks are the future, you know.

Roads across the mountains.


Great highways...

...crisscrossing the desert.

You want the desert to look like that?

I want progress.


Change in the tribal leadership.

Soon you will learn

the old ways of the Berbers...

...the ridiculous traditions.

Ask an honorable man to be his guest,

no man would refuse.

How stupid!

Ask a man for protection,

no harm will come to you.

What nonsense!

I will destroy those traditions,
