Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In the ancient Holy Land, the Israelites and the Philistines are locked in bitter conflict. Samson - a seemingly unbeatable adversary - has come to symbolise Israelite defiance and the dominant Philistines are desperate to uncover the secret of his power. Delilah - desirable, headstrong and reckless - is tired of living the dull life of a demure maiden. She wants more, and tempted by an offer she can't refuse, is persuaded to make a bargain. But this is no easy game of win or lose. Instead, Delilah makes an astonishing discovery, one that she could never have imagined. But a sequence of events has been put in motion and only a miracle can change the course of history...
