AN EPIC BIBLICAL SAGA OF FAITH, AMBITION AND BETRAYAL FROM THE WRITERS OF EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS
Countless wars have pushed KING SAUL to the edge of madness. When God's prophet, SAMUEL demands the king to go war with the Amalekites to save his crown, Saul reluctantly goes into battle once more.
In the meantime, shepherd DAVID uses his cunning to defeat a lion to secure the safety of his flock and people, thereby proving his ability to lead. When Saul spares the life of the Amalekite king, Samuel predicts that a new king will dethrone Saul, which begins his dramatic fall from grace and the epic rise of David as his successor
Starring Ray Winstone as King Saul.
