This story begins when Jose finds out that Nora, the woman he'd been married to for 30 years and then divorced, has committed suicide. The rabbi explains to Jose that due to the celebration of the Passover festivities, together with a few other factors, if Nora is not buried that same day, they will have to wait almost five days to be able to carry out the burial. It turns out that before she died, Nora devised a Machiavellian plan in order for him to take care of her funeral. But she missed something, a mysterious photograph left under the bed will lead to an unexpected outcome which will remind us that sometimes the greatest love stories are hidden in the smallest places.

Excellent film, a mixture of comedy and tragedy, with outstanding acting and a well-carved script.
Tender, nostalgic and very witty, with good camera angles. Check for the music, and for the fact, that almost all the 92 minutes of the movie, is shot in the department of Nora.
The movie has been presented in the Lima Cinematographic Festival in August 2009, includes a rather sarcastic point of view of the Jewish belief, as well as the depiction of such important characters as Nora's ex husband, the cousin, the maid and the rabbis and all the Jewish characters that appear in the movie. Is worth to note, that the flashbacks are very well decided, but you never truly understand the love the the ex husband still had, or the reason why Nora decides to take her own life.
