The story of three sisters paralyzed by family secrets.  In the midst of struggling to overcome her self-destructive behaviour, the youngest sister, Agnes, returns home determined to confront the past in a community built on avoiding it. Her quest sets in motion a chain of events that allows the sisters each in their own way to re-connect with the world and one another. Set in post-industrial Cape Breton, Marion Bridge is a story of poignant humor and drama. The film stars Molly Parker (Max, Kissed, Deadwood), Rebecca Jenkins (Bye Bye Blues, Black Harbour, Wilby Wonderful) and Stacy Smith (New Waterford Girl).
