About the Program
When his ex-wife, Nora, dies right before Passover, José is forced to stay with her body until she can be put to rest after the holiday festivities. José suspects that he is a pawn in Nora’s plan to manipulate him after her death, especially when a mysterious photograph of her suggests she may have led a secret life.
