Synopsis: What man intends for evil, God intends for good. This simple, yet powerful message is all Brady Gray has left. His brothers, driven by jealousy, cast away their own flesh and blood in the same way Joseph was sold into slavery by his siblings. Heartbroken and separated from his family, Brady holds tightly to his faith and begins to build a new life for himself. But there are more challenges in store for this servant of God. False accusations land Brady in prison, where his God-given gift of interpreting dreams helps him forge friendships that will play an important role in his ultimate salvation. Upon his miraculous release from prison, Brady discovers, as his dreams predicted, that his brothers direly need his help. Despite the pain and suffering caused by his betrayal, Brady must find the strength to embrace one of the Bible's most important messages: We forgive because we are forgiven
Seasons of Gray is a modern day retelling of the story of Joseph and his coat of many colors. This uplifting feature film is quality family entertainment with strong morals and an enduring message of hope.
This is a terrific story which everyone should be able to relate to. The movie is about a man named Brady Gray, a rancher, and his story parallels that of Joseph in the Bible. His father loves him very much and his brothers are jealous of him, especially after his father presents him with a new truck for his birthday and Brady tells his brothers that he has dreamed that they wind up in great need and call on him to help them. He goes through false accusations and being misunderstood.
The brothers beat up Brady and pay a cattle hauler to take him away. He winds up hitchhiking and meets a man named Chris that becomes a good friend to him. He goes to work for a prestigious company and gains favor with one of the main bosses, a man named Benson. But soon he faces more trouble when Benson's wife comes on to him and he refuses her sexual advances. She accuses him of attempted rape and, although falsely accused, Brady winds up in prison. While there he interprets the dreams of two prisoners and soon he unexpectedly is given a new lease on life and a chance to work for his former company again. Sure enough, his brothers face a serious situation and only Brady can bail them out. But will he?
We are pleased to award this movie our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for ages twelve plus. This one will inspire viewers to remember that God is always at work behind the scenes of our lives and that, when we don't understand what is happening to us, if we trust Him He will work things out for our advantage and good in the end.
