Synopsis

In 7th century Mecca, powerful leaders are in conflict with Muhammad who attacks the many injustices their way of life produces – slavery, drunkeness and cruelty. Muhammad claims to have seen a vision of the Angel Gabriel and calls to the people of Mecca to worship one God only. After a revelation from God, Muhammad agrees to take up arms against Mecca and leads a group of inexperienced Muslim troops to victory at the wells of Badr. However, in the wake of their subsequent defeat at the Battle of Uhud, Muhammad and his followers accept a ten-year truce, allowing them to continue spreading the word of God. Muhammad is the prophet...The Messenger of God.
