In this award-winning, hypothetical “what-if?” short film written, produced by and acted in by Chen Drachman and starring Tovah Feldshuh, a Passover seder is followed by a surprising revelation of the family matriarch’s secret identity.

After the film, meet writer-producer-actor Chen Drachman who will be interviewed by Mike Abrams.

Sponsored by Diane and John Abrams and Abrams EyeCare.
