To escape the edict that condemned all first-born Hebrew males by Egypt's Pharoah, Rameses I, the infant Moses is set adrift on the Nile in a reed basket. Saved by the pharaoh's daughter Bithiah, he is adopted by her and brought up in the court of her brother, Pharaoh Seti. Moses gains Seti's favor and the love of the throne princess Nefertiri. He also gains the hatred of Seti's son, Rameses. When his Hebrew heritage is revealed, Moses is cast out of Egypt, and makes his way across the desert where he marries, has a son and is commanded by God to return to Egypt to free the Hebrews from slavery. In Egypt, Moses's fiercest enemy proves to be not Rameses, but someone near to him.« Less

Rameses: "You have rat's ears and a ferret's nose." Dathan: "To use in your service, true son of Pharaoh." Rameses: "Add to them, the eyes of a weasel. And find me this would-be deliverer."
Sephora: "Which of my sisters did you choose?" Moses: "I made no choice, Sephora." Sephora: "She was very beautiful, wasn't she... this woman of Egypt, who left her scar upon your heart... Her skin was white, as curd? Her eyes, green as the cedars of Lebanon... Her lips, tamarisk honey... Like the breast of a dove, her arms were soft... And the wine of desire was in her veins..." Moses: "Yes... She was beautiful... As a jewel." Sephora: "A jewel has brilliant fire... but it gives no warmth." (cont'd)
Sephora: "...Our hands are not so soft, but they can serve. Our bodies not so white, but they are strong. Our lips are not perfume, but they speak the truth. Love is not an art to us... It's life to us. We are not dressed in gold, and fine linen. Strength and honor are our clothing. Our tents are not the columned halls of Egypt, but our children play happily before them. We can offer you little... but we offer all we have." Moses: "I have not little, Sephora. I have nothing." Sephora: "Nothing from some, is more than gold from others." Moses: "You would fill the emptiness of my heart?" Sephora: "I could never fill all of it, Moses. I shall not be jealous of a memory."
Nefretiri: "I could never love you." Rameses: "Does that matter? You will be my wife. You will come to me whenever I call you, and I will enjoy that very much. Whether you enjoy it or not is your own affair. But I think you will..."
Nefretiri: "You need have no fear of me." Sephora: "I feared only his memory of you." Nefretiri: "You have been able to erase it?" Sephora: "He has forgotten both of us. You lost him when he went to seek his God. I lost him when he found his God."
