A young, idealistic British officer in WWI, T.E. Lawrence is assigned to the camp of Prince Feisal, an Arab tribal chieftain and leader in the ongoing revolt against the Turks. In a series of brilliant tactical maneuvers, Lawrence leads fifty of Feisal's men in a tortured three-week crossing of the Nefud Desert to attack the strategic Turkish-held port of Aqaba. Following his successful raids against Turkish troops and trains, Lawrence's triumphant leadership and unyielding courage gain him nearly god-like status among his Arab brothers.
