Saturated with local color, Judy Irving’s film weaves elements of nature documentary and personal portraiture into a tale of love and survival in the urban jungle. This is the story of a flock of wild cherry-headed conures—descendants of escaped or abandoned pets—and one ponytailed man, Mark Bittner, who, like the birds, has endured hardship and displacement but eventually flourished in the unique habitat of North Beach.
