Synopsis / Plot
Three thousand years ago, Ram, son of an impoverished tribe living in an arid land, dreams of changing his way of life. He feels he is suffocating amid his boorish brothers who, driven by jealousy and avarice, decide to kill him. But the hardship he faces in Egypt are all the more daunting : there are solitude, passion and, finally, Ram's unwilling involvement in the power struggle between the wealthy advocates of the ancient god Amon, and downtrodden followers of Aton, the Sun God. But by waging battle against his enemies, and especially against himself, Ram will try to create his own, personal moral vision.
