When Joseph receives a beautiful coat from his parents, his eleven brothers hate him even more, and are driven to sell him to desert merchants, who take him to Egypt. There he is made the servant of a wealthy Egyptian who misunderstands him, and has him thrown into prison. He shows his God-given gift by interpreting the dreams of two other prisoners. Eventually, the Pharaoh begins to be plagued by dreams, and sends for Joseph, who interprets them and saves Egypt in the process. He is made second in command to Pharaoh, and has most of Egypt's grain stored. Eventually his brothers arrive in Egypt to buy food because of famine, and he must forgive them. Then the dreams that had angered his brothers, were in reality prophecies that had come from God.

The adornments Joseph is given after interpreting Pharaoh's dreams are a wink to the earlier DreamWorks film, The Prince of Egypt
(1998). Joseph very closely resembles Moses. See more
Sunflowers are featured often within the movie, usually in connection with Joseph's mother, Rachel. However, sunflowers are native to the Americas, and did not grow elsewhere until European explorers brought seeds back with them during the 16th century. See more
Will you forgive me, for thinking I was some miracle from God?
But you are a miracle. God sent you to save our family and all of Egypt. And you did.
