This film is inspired by the tale from Hebrew Scriptures and the Christian Bible and centers on the Moabitess child Ruth being sold to the temple of Chemosh. After several years, she becomes a priestess to the idol. She meets a Judean family of artisans while preparing for a temple ritual. The family consists of Elimelech, his wife Naomi, their sons Chilion and Mahlon, and daughter-in-law Orpah. Ruth becomes curious about their religion and begins to meet with Mahlon.
