It is May 23, 1948, and Jewish and Muslim forces have been in brutal
conflict since the new State of Israel was proclaimed nine days ago. The
Zion Gate is closed and the Haganah patriots, struggling to hold on to
the Old City, are running out of supplies. Inside the city, the
defenders’ valiant spirit threatens to fail. The leading Haganah
strategist, Moshe Sachar, is trapped in enemy territory and desperately
races to reach his pregnant wife, Rachel, and the others who continue to
fight for the Old City. Rachel’s grandfather sees a prophecy of hope
for Jerusalem, but can Moshe reach them before it’s too late?
