The Unorthodox

Based loosely on actual events that changed the political landscape in 1980s Israel, The Unorthodox is an underdog story that features humor, suspense, and great music. A Sephardic dad is inspired to challenge the ruling political party when his daughter is kicked out of a prestigious Ashkenazi school because of her ethnicity. Shuli Rand (Ushpizin) stars as the outraged dad, who leads the charge along with a band of misfit partners, despite knowing nothing about how politics work. Even with the less-than-ethical methods they employ at times, it’s hard not to root for this gang in their effort to create a more just political system.
