The Thing About December
An original adaptation of Donal Ryan’s acclaimed novel
Adapted by Jarlath Tivnan in collaboration with Andrew Flynn
Rural Tipperary at the turn of the 21st century. Johnsey Cunliffe, a simple, naïve only-child in his twenties, grieves the death of his much-loved father. Harassed by local bullies and excluded by his peers, Johnsey’s isolation worsens when his inherited farm is re-zoned and becomes valuable. The clouds gather as locals try to tempt Johnsey into giving up his family’s land, while Johnsey, the unlikeliest of heroes, must try to hold onto those things dearest to him.
