Plot

Nora's Will t0gstaticcomimagesqtbnANd9GcRm7rMAyUeqg1BSAE

Nora commits suicide in a timely way consistent with her plan to bring her ex-husband, Jose (Luján), and the rest of their family together for a Passover together.

A photograph from the past, hidden under the bed, leads Jose to reexamine their relationship.

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.
