Summary
"Go away from your father's house to a land I will show you. Make a great nation. And I will bless all those who bless you and curse all those who curse you." A humble shepherd named Abraham hears these words from God and embarks on an epic journey to the Promised Land. With his family and a handful of followers, Abraham faces thirst, famine, war, the might of Pharaoh and his own doubts to become the father of three great religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Richard Harris leads a stellar cast including Barbara Hershey, Vittorio Gassman and Maximilian Schell in this sweeping Old Testament story. Filmed in Morocco's rugged Atlas Mountains, Abraham captures the power of God's will ... and the devotion of one man"--BACK of CONTAINER
