  • (Produced by the National Film Board of Canada; with Alice Diabo, Constance Garneau, Winifred Holden, Cissy Meddings, Mary Meigs, Catherine Roche, Michelle Sweeney, and Beth Webber) When their bus broke down in the middle of nowhere, these seven elderly ladies never imagined that this would give them the chance to re-capture their youth. Stranded at a deserted farmhouse, they didn't have much food, or a decent place to sleep. Or much in common. But they turned a crisis into a magical time of humor and spirit.
