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.

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.

This is one of those coming of age, find yourself and get re-acquainted with a loved one movies. It's not a bad film.
However, it does slow down at times, even for a movie that's just a shade over 75 minutes long. Being Canadian, one of the fun parts of this film was trying to figure out the scenery. One of the funniest parts of this movie is Maury Chaykin as the unabashedly candid and crazy motel attendant who swears his mother is listening in on him all the time. Overall, this is not a bad movie.
