A girl who was hurt as a child keeps the memory of it alive. Lacking love and empathy from her father in the past, she is not able to share her feelings with him. She can’t get rid of the painful memories taking her back to the day she brought home a little dead bird and her father didn’t support her. Sometimes it's too hard to open your feelings and share it with a close person. Sometimes it's too late. Let your painful memory fly away like a free little bird.

An apartment building full of self centered inhabitants. Utterly exhausted caretaker and his sexually frustrated wife. Widowed deer drowning his sorrows in loads of alcohol... While trying to cope with their problems, they find themselves in a hard to solve triangle asking for absurd and irrational solutions. The consequences can easily become permanent, sometimes maybe too permanent. The film is a loose adaptation of a well-known biblical story while transforming it into an contemporary ironic narrative about how the world sometimes works.
