A post-apocalyptic wasteland, adolescent love and hope in a depleted landscape – even in the darkest of worlds, hope persists. BIRDBOY is a striking, Goya award-winning, fever-dream populated by anthropomorphic creatures, human in their dreams and yearnings, trapped in a world destroyed by nuclear catastrophe. Confined to a wasteland, Dinki and her friends plan to escape the island they call home in search of a better life. Only a sullen, pill-popping, BIRDBOY, secluded from the world, beset by personal demons, holds the secret to a brighter future.
