When, after much time away, Kristina is back in Berkshire County, word spreads fast that she and her ex-husband Michael are caring for their estranged, ailing daughter Julie. Broken-hearted and giddy with love and confusion, surprising visitors from Julie’s complicated past practically trip over each other to reach the young woman they thought they’d lost years before but still feel so deeply connected to. Heartfelt and compassionate, Hamish Linklater’s The Whirligig spins a tale of a fractured community weaving a circuitous route back to one another.
