Mary is a substance abuse counsellor with a drinking problem. After getting arrested for drunk driving and losing her job, Mary returns to her hometown where she is forced to come to terms withher estranged father and form a bond with her teenage half-sister whom she’s never met.

Mary Goes Round handles its story beats with a canny mixture of rueful humor, warmth and realism. The script by McGlynn…is understated and astute, with characters that never feel like “types” – Variety

“Writer/director McGlynn’s first feature takes a slightly familiar premise and invests it with spiky energy, richly drawn characters and a streak of caustic humour.” – Now

Mary Goes Round is far from shy of humour despite its serious tone. The whole cast performs triumphantly and their chemistry is palpable.” – The Cinemaholic
