  • When the ashes of her long deceased father show up in the mail, Rebecca enlists the help of her siblings to find a suitable dumpsite for the sooty cremains. This black comedy, shot in the dead of winter in Saskatchewan, is an unusual look at the loss of rites of passage in our secular culture.The film s quiet metaphor - how parental behaviour leaves its smudgy mark on us all despite our most frantic efforts to rid ourselves of the legacy - created a purposeful and layerd theme not typically found in comedic films.
