Using a form of commentary called "midrash" (an imaginative development of thought based on scripture), Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel encourages viewers to draw wisdom for contemporary living from the scripture. With the presence of a master storyteller and the keen insights of a historian, Wiesel conveys the moral and ethical dilemmas facing our Biblical heroes. Their dramatic stories unfold in vivid reenactments filmed on location in The Holy Land and stunning visuals of great works of art from around the world.
