Synopsis
Family and friends sit shivah in Mexico City for Moishe Tartakovsky, a much beloved patriarch. Mourners include a Catholic ex-lover, an Orthodox ex-convict grandson, and a troupe of mariachi musicians. Two Yiddish-speaking spirits wryly observe the mourners while accounting for Moishe's soul.
