In the middle of the desert stands the most extraordinary of all human monuments. The Great Pyramid of Giza is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World that has survived. With astonishingly realistic special effects, the film takes us back to Ancient Egypt 4,500 years ago, where Nakht (voiced by Omar Sharif), a fictional laborer, is conscripted from his village by the Nile to join the 25,000-strong workforce in the desert plateau, where an impressive burial site is being constructed for King Khufu. From water bearer in the limestone quarries, he works his way up through the ranks to senior overseer. Through his eyes we see the construction of the greatest tomb ever known. Brilliantly polished casing stones clad the pyramid and the top (which Nakht helps nudge into place) sparkles with a gold capstone. The base covers 13 acres and is level to within less than one inch.
