A stage play for the ages. Once upon a time, Josiah was the ruler of the most powerful kingdom – and a follower of all rites and rituals under God. The idols in the temple were destroyed, the money changers driven out, and Jerusalem was a city of high esteem. Now surrounding nations Egypt and Babylon want to see the mighty Jerusalem fall. Knowing the end is near, the prophet Jeremiah sends Rebecca –his beloved wife - back to her father, knowing he will never see her again. Over the next twenty years, five kings fall into to unrighteousness and sudden demise. Death seems to be curse on who ever rules Jerusalem. Meanwhile, Jeremiah suffers loneliness, the woes of prison, he wrestles with God, and struggles with his own faith. Yet, Jeremiah cannot deny one truth: that one day Jerusalem’s walls will be destroyed. In the meantime, Solomon Roe – a young officer in the King’s Guard is witness to the demise of three kings. Eventually, he is driven mad by his own disillusionment, to the point that he takes drastic actions against one of them. Finally, King Zedekiah must deal with an ongoing siege that takes place on Jerusalem’s borders – few supplies are getting in. Yet, he refuses to believe the city is as wicked as Jeremiah prophesies. Only when things get worse, and the walls start to burn does Zedekiah realize it’s too late.
