Samson and Delilah
Synopsis
A man and a woman bound by love, divided by power, God's project tools to free the Chosen People from Israel from slavery and Philistine repression.
A man overwhelmed by passions, morally weak and physically strong, as endowed with an incredibile strength, being a God's project tool. Samson is sent  by God but, even if he is aware of this, he persists in errors until the final redemption.
God uses him and his incredibile strength, his appeal with Jewish people, although Samson seems to make his best not to comply with him, choosing love affair – that will lead him to punishment-  instead of religious mission.
