Mo and Willie are half-sisters who have grown apart over time. Willie is a rebellious, hard-drinking waitress while Mo toils away in an office. When their grandmother, who raised them after the death of their mother, passes away, the two siblings reunite. Although they have not spoken for some time, Mo convinces her sister that their grandmother deserves to be buried back on the east coast, in the place where she grew up and which is home to a family they've never known. The first of many problems is that they have to steal the body; the next is that they have no idea where they're going. Nonetheless, the two quickly turn into bumbling, bickering but virtuous thieves. After buying a used refrigerated ice cream truck to transport the body, the siblings set out across the country. Moving from small town to small town, they come into contact with a bevy of eccentric characters, soon realize that they have a cash flow problem and are forced to continue their criminal ways. Along the route... Written by
Mo and Willie are half-sisters that were raised by their loving grandmother, Nan. She dies in a nursing home across Canada. The granddaughters decide that she should be buried near her family homestead across country. Mo borrows an ice cream truck and the girls steal the corpse in a body bag from the funeral home or morgue one night. They travel and stop at a motel where they encounter Maury Chakin, a strange motel operator. Willie gets a date that night. Mo and Willie get back on the truck and head cross country but they get broke and need money. They act criminally to get their beloved Nan home and meet their relatives. It has a bittersweet ending but I never get where Sam fits into the family picture. The writer, director, and actress who plays Willie is remembered from her role on a popular Canadian show, Degrassi High. The actress who plays Mo does a believable and authentic job in making me care about her and Willie's relationship. There are some flaws but it's still a great film.
