Two ancient Egyptian guards at the Red Sea coast try to arrest Moses for not having a permit to part the Red Sea, for littering by his people and for causing a fire by a burning bush. Moses warns that the wrath of god will be upon them and makes one guard disappear, causing the other one to flee and fetch a backup unit.
