The Burial Society (2004) Trailer
Sheldon Kasner, a man of quiet desperation who works as a loan manager at the Hebrew National Bank is overworked and under-appreciated. He struggles to surpass the limitations of his mundane life. Sheldon, the most unlikely of criminals, is drawn into the underworld of money laundering in a desperate attempt to overcome his mediocre existence.
Unfortunately for Sheldon, events don?t unfold as he expects and the missing two million dollars has him begging for his life as he?s dangled from a bridge in the opening sequence of The Burial Society. Forced to reconsider his strategy, Sheldon concocts an elaborate plan involving the Chevrah Kadisha or Burial Society ? devout Jewish men who prepare dead bodies for burial.
Their quick, quiet, and anonymous nature is perfectly suited to Sheldon?s sophisticated plan. He offers his services to the Burial Society, with the idea of staging his own death. For the Burial Society, the inept businessman is the new blood that they've been looking for if their dying tradition is to survive. The kindly older men form a kinship with Sheldon as they indoctrinate him into their world, teaching him the ritualistic ways of the Chevrah Kadisha. As far as Sheldon is concerned, his plans are back on track. But nothing is as it seems and the old men of the Burial Society are hardly the innocents that they appear.
The Burial Society is a gripping, plot-twisting tale of murder and intrigue ? a non-stop suspense thriller that will have audiences doubting themselves at every turn.
