There Came a Gypsy Riding

There Came a Gypsy RidingT01921856167
The McKenna family convenes at their remote West of Ireland holiday home to mark the 21st birthday of their late son Gene. Eccentric cousin Bridget appears along the causeway, inviting herself for birthday cake and conversation, and ready to expose a family secret. Even Margaret, the unstoppable mother, and Leo, the calm father, can t hold things together in the face of an unexpected visit from the past.
