Discovered in a desert cave is an ancient document which casts new light on an old story. The infant Moses, as the story goes, was dispatched down the Nile and rescued by the Pharaoh's daughter. But on the same morning, another child - Herschel - was also set afloat. Herschel just happened to sail past the Princess with a helpful nudge from Moses. So the question is, who was truly God's Chosen? Moses or Herschel? Dudley Moore stars as the adult Herschel trying to find his place in the scheme of things. Also starring are Laraine Newman as Herschel's lusty bride, James Coco as his father, and Richard Pryor as the wildly idiosyncratic Pharaoh.
