Welcome to Woundabout, where routine rules, and change is feared. But transformation is blowing in the wind…
In the wake of tragedy, siblings Connor and Cordelia with their pet capybara are sent to the precariously perched town of Woundabout to live with their eccentric aunt. Woundabout is a place where the mayor has declared that routine rules above all, and no one is allowed to ask questions.
But Connor and Cordelia can’t help their curiosity when they discover a strange crank that mysteriously fits into certain parts of town, and by winding the crank, part of the town is transformed into something beautiful. When the townspeople see this transformation, they don’t see beauty, they only see change. And change, the Mayor says, is something to fear. With the Mayor hot on their trail, can Connor and Cordelia find a way to wind Woundabout back to life?
