The Emigrant

1994 NR

This adventure retells the biblical story of Joseph. Tired of his superstitious family and his bullying brothers, Ram travels to Egypt to study agriculture. His brothers accompany him across the Sinai Desert, but then abruptly "sell" him to an Egyptian who works for a local military leader. It isn't long before Ram finds he's a political pawn caught between the soldier and his sensuous wife -- a priestess of the Cult of Amun.
