SAMSON is based on the powerful, biblical epic of a champion chosen by God to deliver Israel. Samson’s (Taylor James) supernatural strength and impulsive decisions quickly pit him against the oppressive Philistine empire led by the wicked Prince Rallah (Jackson Rathbone).
Throughout Samson’s life, his parents (Rutger Hauer and Lindsay Wagner) have reminded their son how God called him to free his people from the power of the Philistines. Samson knows he was born to be a judge for Israel. But he desires the simple life of a husband and father. Samson believes he has found that life when he meets Taren (Frances Sholoto-Douglas), a servant to Delilah (Caitlin Leahy) in Rallah’s palace. Samson and Taren fall in love, but on their wedding day Rallah betrays the couple. He kills Taren, setting Samson on a path of vengeance.
Powered by God’s supernatural strength, Samson single-handedly kills 1,000 Philistine soldiers with a donkey’s jawbone. Realizing that Samson could lead a Hebrew uprising, King Balek (Billy Zane) sends Rallah away to fight on other fronts for the Philistine empire.
Years later, Rallah returns — determined to take Samson’s power and Balek’s throne. Rallah enlists Delilah to find the source of Samson’s strength, so he can have it for his own. At first Samson resists divulging his secret to Delilah. But soon he can’t resist the charms of the beautiful temptress. Samson is captured and blinded by his enemies. Imprisoned and powerless, Samson prays to God for grace and forgiveness. In the great Philistine temple, Samson calls upon God once more for supernatural strength. God answers, turning Samson’s imprisonment and blindness into final victory.
