Private Project


After a stubborn father denies his wife's dying wish, two estranged half-siblings steal their mother's casket the morning of the funeral and drive across the country... in a hearse. This unconventional X-mas Road-Trip Comedy centers on a brother and sister (and former gospel music duo) who are in desperate need of family, faith and forgiveness.
