On location and archival footage is utilized with sequences of dramatic re-creation, stills of cultural objects, and taped commentary by classical and religious scholars to present a history of the Jewish uprising against Roman rule in Palestine from 66-73 A.D., culminating in the destruction of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and the Jewish fortress at Masada.
