SYNOPSIS

The Burial Society(2004) The world's least likely criminal, Sheldon Kasner, is a man of quiet desperation. He works as a loan manager at the Hebrew National Bank where he's under-appreciated and overworked. He decides to throw caution to the wind, drawing himself into an underworld of money laundering in order to overcome his mediocre existence. Unfortunately for Sheldon, things don't unfold as he expects. Sheldon concocts an elaborate plan involving the Chevrah Kadisha, the Burial Society's devout Jewish men who prepare bodies for burial. Sheldon offers his services, planning to stage his own death. Nothing is as it seems and the old men of the Burial Society are hardly the innocents that they appear in this twist-filled suspense thriller.
