Director’s statement

Rob Huynh says:

“The story was inspired by an image of my mother in a traditional school uniform, a bird-loving uncle, and personal childhood experiences as gang member of obnoxious little brats.

Unfortunately for the feathered creatures, the true-life version of the story did not have a happy ending. I’ve always felt a little guilty about their unintentional demise, so this one is for the birds.”
