Prudence Valiant - Pru to her friends - is a zany adventurer with a thirst for exotic people and places.
So when Prudence gets an urgent summons from the ruler of the tiny desert country of Rinort, she can't resist it. She sets out in her single-prop plane to deliver a special coronation gist to the new sultan of neighbouring Samarkand.
Just getting to Samarkand is quite a challenge, as Prudence encounters mysterious mirages, a sand storm, a gang of villains, and a quick trip by parachute...
But even Prudence isn't prepared for the surprises she uncovers at the coronation ceremony itself!
