"Joseph Master Of Dreams" is a great documentary about the life of Joseph, who is one of my favorite Bible characters. He was a good guy with great God given talents that made him a target of unscrupulous people.

Joseph, a Christian blessed with a gift from God that allowed him to see the future through dreams at night, while he slept and even communicate with the Lord in said manner, became the subject of great envy and jealousy from his brothers.

His brothers became so consumed with covetousness and resentment, due to the great future the Lord showed Joseph he was destined for, that they wanted to kill him... literally. Instead they settled on another unethical solution - sell him into slavery and boy did God let them have it for doing so.

They hatched and executed a plot to sell him into slavery, steal his coat, soak it in animal's blood (too bad there weren’t DNA tests back then), then take it to their dad, telling him Joseph had died. Their dad was devastated at the terrible news.

However, their little dumb plan backfired when Joseph, saw in a series of dreams that famine was coming and warned the king that it was time to stockpile.

Joseph then rapidly ascended the ranks in, Egypt, the foreign country where he was sold into slavery. He was tasked with overseeing its financial plan to prosper during the famine. God was with Joseph, so the plan worked.  

Shortly after, a famine did hit, just as Joseph predicted through his dreams. However, the land Joseph relocated to had more than enough, due to the heads up from God via his dreams. Hey, you can't call it insider trading when God tells you. Just kidding.

Meanwhile, back at home, Joseph's brothers began to suffer when the famine hit their land and supplies were depleted. They ended up having to humble themselves and venture into foreign territory to buy food, from guess who, that's right, Joseph, who was now second in command (like a vice president).

Joseph should have gouged them - "You see this apple, I want $500 for it! And that Jell-O that retails for .79 cents, for you it's $700!" Just kidding.

After a few events unfolded, Joseph was reunited with his dad, who was happy and relieved to see him alive and his brothers, who begged for his forgiveness for selling him into slavery.
