After the death of his father, Ramses XIII (Jerzy Zelnik) becomes the ruler of Egypt. But he quickly realizes that the priests, who command the Egyptian army and oversee the empire's vast treasury, wield the real power. When Ramses defiantly assumes command of the army, he becomes locked in a bitter struggle with the well-connected priests. With the country divided between those loyal to Ramses and those loyal to the old guard, the priests begin warning of a devastating solar eclipse.
