Theft Is A Sin



Page Count: 



Age Rating:

An Orthodox Jewish bank robber falls into an accident and struggles to get back into the one job he knows best.

There are few movies about Orthodox Jews, let alone comedies. I figured: why not make a story set in Orthodox Jewish Brooklyn that takes a lighthearted look at the community. As someone who has lived there for many years, I was able to put in quite a bit of references which most likely only other Orthodox Jews would find funny. But there has been entertainment produced for that audience before, see "Verplankt", a web-show form a few years back.

Either way, this is a short little draft from a while back.
