In 605 B.C. Jerusalem was conquered by the Babylonians and many of their best young men were taken into captivity. Daniel (Andrew Bongiorno) was among those taken to Babylon to serve the powerful King Nebuchadnezzar (Rolf Saxon). Faced with imminent death, Daniel proves himself a trusted advisor and is placed among the king's wise men. Threatened by death at every turn Daniel never ceases to serve the king until he is forced to choose between serving the king and honoring God. With his life at stake Daniel has nothing but his faith to stand between him and the lions' den.
