Audience Award for Best Narrative Film, Miami Jewish Film Festival

In this heart-warming comedy based on the loving marriage of the director’s parents, Judd Hirsch (The Fabelmans) reunites with his Taxi co-star, Carol Kane (Hester Street). Polish-born Holocaust survivors Mordecai and Fela Samel are now condo-residents in Aventura Florida. Mordecai’s life turns upside down when his son Marvin (played by Sean Astin of Lord of the Rings) convinces him to replace his ancient flip phone with a state-of-the-art iPhone. “An uplifting comedy and a love letter to the city of Miami, iMordecai urges us all to live the one life we have to the fullest.” (Miami Jewish Film Festival)
