Stay Awhile

The untold story of one of Canada's first breakout musical acts, The Bells: Two sisters, Ann and Jacki, possessed voices that harmonized beautifully. Cliff's gruff, deep lead vocals were a perfect compliment. Romantic entanglements, first between Jacki and Cliff, followed by the marriage of Cliff to Ann, reflected their youth and naiveté when faced with life on the road.

Told from the perspective of Cliff and Ann’s youngest daughter, writer/director Jessica Edwards, Stay Awhile is a film that transcends the simple dream of life in a band, exposing the real emotional dynamics between the men and women who were part of it.

Director: Jessica Edwards

Producers: Sean Buckley, Michael Kennedy
