A huge story, set in the UK, Israel and Ethiopia, centred on religious faith - its value and its dangers. The product of extensive research and travel, Hugh wrote a complex interlocking screenplay. In the light of "9/11″ and all that has followed, it was a prophetic work.
"An intelligent and beautiful drama." Elizabeth Cowley (Daily Mail)
