About the Film

The Emigrant is inspired by the biblical tale of Joseph. Ram’s jealous brothers throw him into a boat, only to be sold as a slave in Egypt. But his ambition opens the doors to the secret of the pharaohs; while his looks entice Simihit, the wife of Amihar, the military leader who has treated Ram like a son.
