When King Ahasuerus rejects his wife Vashti for disobeying his command to come before a large crowd at a feast, Esther is chosen as queen to replace her. In her position of influence, Esther is able to save her people from destruction.

Haman, the kings assistant, desires to destroy the Jewish people. Esther puts her life at risk in order to expose an evil plot. She saves her people from destruction.
