Enslaved by Pharaoh, monarch of ancient Egypt, the Hebrews are forced to labor beneath the blazing desert sun, without rest and without hope. But then, from among the slaves, there emerges a leader who's not afraid to confront Pharaoh. His name is Moses. When Moses demands that his people to be let free, Pharaoh reacts with scorn, because he has behind him all the power of a great kingdom. But Moses is backed by the power of God. Thus begins a titanic struggle between two determined men, with Moses calling down increasingly destructive plagues to break Pharaoh's hold on the Hebrews. The story reaches a thrilling climax when Moses and his people find themselves trapped between an angry army and a deep sea.
