"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.

Filmed in Morocco's rugged Atlas Mountains, Abraham captures the power of God's will... and the devotion of one man. Color/187 minutes. Closed captioned. Not rated.
