Long, long ago in the land of Egypt, a Hebrew mother and her daughter, Miriam, hide a newborn baby boy in a basket that they float down the Nile River to save the child's life. Rescued from the river by the Egyptian princess, Pharaoh's daughter, the boy is named Moses. When he grows up, he leads the Israelite people out of slavery.
