A baby boy is hidden in a basket floating on the Nile. A fearful mother sings a song of protection. And a brave big sister seeks a chance to save her brother.

Meet the family of baby Moses in this lyrical retelling, and see how God’s faithfulness can be revealed through one small person who takes a big risk for someone she loves.
