When Moishe Tartavosky, the exuberant patriarch of a Mexico City family, dies of a heart attack in the middle of a raucous mariachi party, he leaves behind a large and complicated web of secrets and relationships that must be untangled over the course of his seven-day shivah (the prescribed mourning period in Jewish custom).  In this sly and charming dysfunctional-family comedy, the unraveling shivah will serve to account for the life of the deceased, but more importantly will bring those he left behind to account for themselves.

In Spanish with English subtitles.
