Babylon - Quest for Love
Several Hebrew captives arrive in Babylon from the land of Judah. Among them are Darnill and his sister Helez. King Nebuchadnezzar's aim is to educate them in the ways and laws of Babylon so they can serve in his court. Murder, threats and escape from the fiery furnace of execution follow as their life in Babylon unfolds. Helez, a plain Hebrew girl of noble birth, falls in love with Zarko-Bel, son of the chief army commander. Their unlikely love is threatened by his reputation as a womaniser and by the fact that he serves other gods. Will she eventually open herself to be loved or stay true to her faith? Zarko-Bel has had his way with several nubile young girls in the past. He battles his own demons as he tries to win the heart of the beautiful Hebrew exile. Will he succeed or is this the one that will get away? Together they face life in Babylon and must survive jealousy, despair and loss. Will they be triumphant in their love for one another or will the challenges they face drive a wedge between them? Only time will tell if they will overcome the obstacles in their path to have a chance to live happily ever after
