When It Is Dark
A magical realism meditation on the afterlife, this tale of loss, bittersweet yearning and deep abiding love sees a woman visited by the spirit of her sister during a Newfoundland Mummering in the early 1900s. While the ghost facilitates a romance, it is the love between the sisters that transcends the physicality of death.
A group of women find a good book is worth fighting for in this satirical spin on a famous film.
