In this movie written with Russian scriptwriter Alexandre Abadachian, Giacomo Campiotti transposed to our time an old story told in the Bible and the Coran: the one of Joseph and his brothers.
The action doesn’t take place in Palestine nor in Egypt, but in Paris and on the lack of Côme.
Joseph became Gabriele (Fabrizio Bentivoglio), a brilliant Parisian art expert, born in Italy, who comes back to his childhood town in order to revenge of injuries his brothers made him endure. Indeed at the death of his father (Giancarlo Giannini), whom he was the favorite son, his brothers chased him from the family residence.
