Synopsis

Daniel, an ultra orthodox Jew, hasn’t seen his identical twin brother Mordechai in years; Mordechai's 'life choices' were a bit too much for the family to handle. But today is the day of their father’s funeral and Daniel is forced to pick Mordechai up from the airport. When their reunion is cut short Daniel is offered the opportunity he's always been looking for...
Mordechai is a funny and touching fable about family, faith and the roles we play.
This short film is set around a traditional ultra orthodox Jewish family in the northeast of England. It was made with help and support of the ultra orthodox community here. The film stars members of the Orthodox community acting on film for the very first time.
