Following the death of his brother Thomas, Connie finds himself enmeshed in grief. Days bleed together and life loses its joy as the young man tries to rationalise his loss. While in this malaise a bird crashes into Connie’s window, bringing with it more than just broken wings. Soon Connie finds himself face to face with the man he’s mourning and takes comfort in the ghost’s familiarity. However this comfort soon starts to spoil as Thomas’ obsession with birds and Connie’s inability to let his brother go threaten to destroy them both.
