SYNOPSIS

A gravely ill man with an unconditional love for his pigeons fights against all those who attempt to save him. The more he fights to protect his beloved pigeons, the more his sickness and bitterness grow, as well as the gap with his family.

This is a gripping flight from enthusiasm into obsession witnessed in an extremely well-crafted and unsettling miniature about masculine pride and how it can curdle into spiky paranoia.
