Ted remembers a time when the birds rained down. A lifetime ago a devastating forest fire engulfed his Quebecois home, as well as the birds. Now he is living out his later years in the same forest, isolated but for his companions Charlie and Tom and their dogs. It seems their sylvan hermitage is a kind of paradise, but disturbing undercurrents of discontent flow through it, and the balance is thrown when two women arrive – one the long-institutionalised aunt of Steve, owner of a local (and deserted) hotel, the other a younger photographer keen to document the survivors of that forest fire.
