The Man Who Was Full of Birds plunges the viewer into a post-apocalyptic world seen through the eyes of an unknown man.

Living in solitude, our hero has learnt how to live off the land in a desperate struggle for survival. Settling in an abandoned village, his lonely existence is painfully haunted by the remains of civilization surrounding him.

Through a series of unexpected events, he slowly loses touch with the concept of humanity and battles the rise of the animal within.
