This is the story of a young Jewish boy who reached manhood during the tumultuous period of Roman rule in Israel. Young Atara joins the burgeoning Zealot movement because of his hatred and anger towards the Roman occupiers. Through forces beyond his control, he is inadvertently catapulted into the midst of the most significant event in human history: the final Passover week of the Messiah.
