About the Short Film:
Plays with: KEEP THE CHANGE
Esther's father was a gravedigger who left only one significant request in his last will and testament: that one of his sons continues with his profession. None have the slightest interest in doing so. Esther, the only daughter in this traditional Sephardic North African home, embarks upon a struggle to carry out her father's wishes and continue his legacy of humility and kindness over the objections of her family and community. A feminist film with a twist of graveyard humor.
