On Their Knees

Directed by Anais Granofsky
Canada, 2001 (fiction, 85 minutes, colour, English)

Film Description:
"Mo (Ingrid Veninger) and Willie (Anais Granofsky) 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."
