Young Englishman Lord Wilson is travelling through Egypt with his servant, John Bull. At the foot of a pyramid, they meet a caravan of Arab merchants who kindly invite them into their tent. Suddenly, a powerful storm breaks out. Travellers and merchants are forced to take shelter in the nearest pyramid. The caretaker asks his uninvited guests to keep the noise down as Aspicia, the daughter of one of Egypt's most powerful Pharaohs, lies in a tomb nearby.
Settling down, the merchants light up their opium pipes. Lord Wilson also asks for a chibouk. He soon falls asleep and begins to have strange dreams in which the Pharaoh's daughter, Aspicia, comes alive and lays her hand over his heart. Lord Wilson is instantly transported into the past where he becomes Ta-Hor, an ancient Egyptian. Ta-Hor and Aspicia fall in love, but her hand in marriage has been promised to a Nubian king...
