Winner of a host of festival awards and the 2013 submission from the Netherlands to The Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film. This is the story a young boy – brought up alone by his father and having difficulty coping with the absence of his mother – who develops a special relationship with a fledgling rescued jackdaw. The arrival of the bird acts as a catalyst between father and son, as both struggle to come to terms with their loss. Whilst aimed at audiences from age 12, it still has an emotional punch and something to offer all ages.

Thanks to Waterland Film, Netherlands.
