The Prince of Egypt

The classic biblical tale of Moses freeing the Hebrew slaves in Egypt is brought to the screen in "The Prince of Egypt." Moses begins his life as a Hebrew slave but when the Egyptian pharoah orders the Hebrew's babies killed, his mother saves him by placing Moses in a basket and sending him down the Nile. Baby Moses is found by the Egyptian queen and she adopts him, raising Moses alongside her own son, Prince Ramses. Growing up he enjoys his carefree royal life until one day he meets his real family and comes to realizes how horrible the lives of the Hebrews are. Moses' struggles to discover where he truly belongs sets his feet on a path destined to be remembered for all time--"Ramses, Let my people go!"
