Jezebel, a young princess of Tyre, is destined to marry King Ahab of Israel. Yet, determined to rule her own life, she begins an illicit affair with Jehu, a visiting prince at court. Years pass and Jehu, unable to relinquish his love for Jezebel, grows bitter and twisted. But he is unaware of Jezebel's greatest secret - that he is father to her eldest son Ahaziah, the heir to Israel's throne. With the King's health deteriorating, Jezebel gradually assumes control of Israel. But hatred of her is spreading across the land, fanned by the prophet Elijah and his aide, the terrifying Elisha. As they plot her downfall, Jezebel must fight for her beliefs against all odds.
