One night, the spiritual leader of Qumran awakes in panic, after seeing a vision in his dreams, of a gray cloud approaching the city, every shapeshifting, and leaving ruin and suffering in its wake. Despite not being able to understand the vision yet, he fears it may become a reality, yet still hides it from the people, convincing himself that tis but a dream.
Life returns to normal, and the dream is forgotten, until the outbreak of the great rebellion against the Roman Empire, causing upheaval. A dilemma lies before him, to escape with his family beforehand, or to stay and fight alongside the people of the city against all odds and to the end.
Time grows short, and the window of opportunity is closing. What will he do?
Present and past collide in a rare moment, when scrolls tell us of the people of Qumran, a lone community by the Dead Sea, which is trying to preserve its unique traditions and existence in an ever-changing environment, where violence increases, corruption thrives, and ethics are pushed aside, bringing to the community’s destruction, during the times of the late Second Temple ere, in the days of the great rebellion.
