On this IMDbrief, we break down the worst gifts ever given in our favorite holiday movies. Watch now. Muffins for Granny is a remarkably layered, emotionally complex story of personal and cultural survival. McLaren tells the story of her own grandmother by combining precious home movie fragments with the stories of seven elders dramatically affected by their experiences in residential school.
