“TULIPANI: LOVE, HONOUR and a BICYCLE”    is a cross-cultural, decades spanning, whimsical comedy-drama which takes place in Italy. A young woman, Anna travels from her home in Montreal to Italy upon the dying wish of her late mother.  Upon arriving there to scatter her ashes, however, her straightforward trip takes on greater significance and reveals the true history of Anna’s family background.
