rated for 0 + years
Nora is preparing for death. Her ex-husband is to manage the funeral, the whole family is to gather at the table: her suicide is planned for the Passover feast. But her plan has weak points: the cemetery administration won’t bury suicides and the Passover celebrations will bring public life to a standstill. The plan mirrors the complex problem structures within Nora’s family – and then a found photograph leads to a finale full of surprises.
