Bus Story

Top of page

When a woman signs up to drive a school bus, she dreams of cruising down quiet country lanes and connecting with nature, her young charges and their parents. But her idyllic view of her new job is sorely tested when she meets her surly boss, “Killer,” and discovers that the pretty winding roads can prove treacherous in winter, especially with a faulty clutch.

Bus Story is a comedy written and created by tali, the animator behind At Home with Mrs. Hen (2006). Inspired by the filmmaker’s misadventures as a school bus driver in the Eastern Townships, her new work is a perfect addition to her filmography, which is known for the social and autobiographical content of the stories she tells. Through her cheeky humour and oblique look at the realities of life for people in the Quebec countryside, tali delivers a film that is unique, witty and touching.
