Auditions for the Musical "Esther".
Young, orphaned, and a refugee in a foreign land, things seem like they couldn't get much worse for Hadassah. Then her guardian Mordecai brings home the news that the King of Persia-Xerxes-has decided to divorce his queen and will have his pick of the ladies of the land for his new queen. It might seem like the opportunity of a lifetime, but for Hadassah, who has to change her name to Esther, things take a darker turn.
An evil, scheming prince wants to destroy not only her beloved guardian, but wants to wipe out her entire people group, in a BC-era genocide attempt that rivals the ruthless mindset of Hitler.
In the events that follow, the story moves at such a breathless pace and circumstances align in such a way that Esther sees her purpose and concludes she was placed in her unique role for "such a time as this."
