DIVIDED AMONG THEMSELVES
by Hank Kimmel
A righteous rabbi tries to honor the memory of her scheming father without betraying her core beliefs.
Samantha Marcus is a progressive rabbi who wants to live a good and decent life. She and her three sisters – a real estate developer, a struggling tennis pro, and a spiritualist – have been out of touch for years. Following the death of their father, who was a hard-drinking, hard-driving union activist, Samantha is impelled to bring them together to re-calculate their shared legacy and divide his estate.
Divided Among Themselves is a dramatic comedy that explores America’s differing views toward money, charity, and self-reliance – while examining the relationship of a grown child to a deceased parent.
