Synopsis:

Quebec, Canada. Nowadays.

Three elderly hermits live in the woods, cut off from the rest of the world. While wildfires threaten the region, their quiet life is about to be shaken by the arrival of two women… A luminous octogenarian unjustly institutionalized her whole life, and a young photographer charged with interviewing survivors of the region’s deadliest forest fire. A story of intertwined destinies, where love can happen at any age.

And the Birds Rained Down will force you to re-examine your relationship with yourself, the world around you, and the people you love.” -Globe and Mail

“Engaging, thought-provoking and ultimately moving.” -The Hollywood Reporter
