Condemned to die by Pharaoh while just a baby, Hebrew Moses is set adrift on the River Nile by his mother and his sister. Rescued by the daughter of Pharaoh, he grows up thinking he's an Egyptian prince. Eventually exiled from Egypt when he is exposed as a Jew, he is touched by God, and told that he will lead his enslaved Chosen People to the Promised Land. With the hand of God firmly on his shoulder, and with faith as his only weapon, Moses performs miracles, casts down plagues, evades a pursuing Egyptian army, parts the Red Sea and, after forty years of leading the Hebrew Chosen Ones to the Promised Land, is embraced by God and led to a better place. What makes this version of The Ten Commandments unique is that it highlights Moses' family, both real and extended, on this long journey. Filled with high adventure, the miraculous, and a gentle sense of humour, 'The Ten Commandments' showcases Moses, the reluctant prophet, who was the only man in Biblical history to see the face of God and call him 'friend.'
