Moses the Lawgiver plot
"Announcing the Most Magnificent Human Spectacle Ever Filmed!"
In the distant past there lived a Pharaoh who saw the people of Israel as a threat to their land and culture. They were very prolific and they increased in number rapidly. So he gave the order to kill every firstborn son of the Israelites, and the people of Israel were enslaved. When Moses is born, his parents are afraid that Moses will also be killed, so he is put in a basket on the Nile. There he is found by the sister of the pharaoh, unfortunately she has always remained childless and she raises Moses as if it were her own child. When Moses is an adult, it turns out that he is actually an Israeli and when one of the guards mistreats one of his people, he accidentally kills them.
