At the beginning of World War II, American pilot Robert Smith is taking part in the effort to help China fight against the Japanese forces. During a liaison cargo mission from India to China, his cargo plane crashes somewhere in Tibet. Yongcho is a young single mother, and the tribe she belongs to is the descendant of the Evil Kingdom, which was conquered by the hero-Gesar King many years ago. Since her earliest age, she's been a castaway by her own tribe, because she is thought a "cursed woman" as an incarnation of evil. After surviving the crash, Robert tries to find his way back to his force, but the harsh elements are almost stronger than his will to survive: he finds himself snow-blind and finally falls in a faint in the blizzard.
