South of Wawa is a Canadian comedy film, which was released in 1991. It was written by Lori Lansens, and directed by Robert Boyd.[1]

The film stars Rebecca Jenkins as Lizette, a woman stuck in an unhappy marriage who organizes a road trip with her coworker Cheryl Ann (Catherine Fitch) to see Dan Hill in concert.[2]

The film's soundtrack includes songs by Cowboy Junkies, Rickie Lee Jones, Lyle Lovett and Lee Aaron.

Although the film's title alludes to the Northern Ontario town of Wawa, the film is actually set in the Western Ontario town of Stayner.[1]
