In this animated adaptation of the Bible story Moses hears the voice of God from a burning bush, which inspires him to confront Egypt's pharaoh and demand freedom for the Israelite slaves. The pharaoh agrees after a series of horrific plagues, and Moses leads the Israelites through the parted Red Sea into the harsh freedom of the desert. There he ascends Mount Sinai and returns with the Ten Commandments.
This animated feature relates the mythical story of the Hebrews' Exodus out of Egyptian bondage. It follows Moses from his childhood as the adopted son of Pharaoh to his adulthood as the chosen one of Yahweh and liberator of his people.
