Samson, leader of the Israelites, is a man of superhuman strength. Against the Philistines he seems invincible. With Delilah, his Philistine lover, he is openly infatuated.
The source of Samson’s power is a secret – but when Delilah decides to root it out, her discovery threatens to change the course of history forever.
