The surprising and empathetic For the Birds, follows an unusual woman named Kathy who lives with 200 pet chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys. What starts as a story seemingly about Kathy’s battle with local animal advocacy groups, slowly transforms into an intimate drama about her relationship with her husband Gary and the toll the birds have taken on their marriage and her wellbeing. This sensitive tale, poignant and absorbing in equal measure, is ultimately one of hope about the possibility of regaining one’s life.
