“The Hudson Tribes” is a Socio-Political Crime Thriller, inspired by true events. Amids racial tensions, a Hasidic young man falls in love with a Hispanic woman who teaches at the school his leaders are shutting down. During a contentious school board vote led by an Orthodox Jewish majority, a prominent leader in the Hasidic community is ruthlessly kidnapped by a local right-wing extremist, and witnessed by the curious eye of this teenager. The young man decides to withhold information from the police in order to uncover the crime himself - only to realize that the woman he’s infatuated with - is dating the main culprit. Inspired by true events in an up-state New York town, where a public school district is being torn apart by corrupt politicians, racial divides, and escalating violence - can a romantic connection between two people from distinct ethnic groups bring this town together?
