Deborah has a gift; she can see the future
As Deborah grows up, so do the date palms that surround her home. Under these trees, people come from far and wide to seek guidance from the great prophetess and judge. In her dreams, Deborah foresees danger to the people of Israel. She summons a general to speak with her beneath the date palms. “War is coming and you must prepare,” she tells him. For the girl that grew up under the date palms, her moment of destiny has arrived. Based on the story of the biblical heroine Deborah.
