2016 Ocktober Film Festival Selection (Short Film)
Synopsis: Unorthodox is a short film about Carol Rosen, a 35 year old Jewish wife and mother of three, who reaches a place in her life where she feels the need to rebel. Years of suppressed questions and doubt about her religion, marriage, and life are brought to the forefront after she learns of the adulterous behavior of her husband, Mark, a 39 year old notarized Brooklyn prosecutor. He gets caught in an internal office investigation that links him to prostitution solicitation. With her trust shattered and faith shook, Carol yearns to delve further into her hidden fantasies of an unorthodox life. She finds a comfortable pathway to this experience through a friend and coworker Travis Gill. An attractive and articulate 35 year old black man, Travis becomes Carol's escape from her reality, if even for a moment, until she is left to deal with her own morality. It's a story that challenges temptations, beliefs, and one's sense of existence.
