The Prince Of Egypt. “My son, I have nothing I can give, but this chance that you may live.” With these words, Yocheved, a Hebrew mother, places her infant son in a basket and sets him adrift on the Nile River. His sister Miriam follows him along the riverbank to ensure its safety. After a perilous journey, the basket floats near the royal palace, where it is spotted by the Queen. As she approaches the basket with her young son nearby, she marvels at the beautiful infant boy inside. She names the baby Moses and adopts him as her own. Based on the ‘Book of Exodus’ in the Bible, this is the story of Moses.
