They have arrived! After 40 years wandering in the wilderness, the Israelites are finally ready to cross the Jordan River and claim the Promised Land. While they celebrate, the surrounding kingdoms of Moab and Midian summon the prophet Balaam from Babylonia. Joining forces with the powers of darkness, he gathers a coalition of five Midianite kings and the seductive Princess Cozbi to prevent the crossing that would change the world. The mutiny, plague, and war unleashed by his plan plunges a young generation of Israelites into a vortex of violence and upheaval beyond anything they could have imagined.
