Synopsis

‘In order to become the person you always wanted to be, you have to, on occasion, become someone else first…’

Daniel, an ultra-Orthodox Jew, hasn’t seen his identical twin brother 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…

Mordechai is a funny and touching fable about family, faith and the roles we play. It is set around a traditional Jewish family, but has themes that will resonate with audiences of all faiths and backgrounds.
