This work talks about a boy who was saved, and a man who would set his people free. An ancient people have been made into slaves, forced into a life of endless servitude and labour. The King has ordered that all their male children be slaughtered to make sure it stays that way. But one boy, Moses, survives, hidden in a basket on a riverbank. He will rise up to demand that the King lets his people go, bringing plagues of blood, fire and locusts in his wake until, against all the odds, he leads the Israelites to a new world.
