Kathy is a very unusual woman. She keeps pet chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys – 200 of them. Beginning as a story of her battle with animal advocacy groups this film slowly transforms into an intimate drama about her relationship with her husband Gary and the toll her 200 pet birds have taken on their marriage and her wellbeing. Told over the course of five years this is ultimately a tale of hope and the possibility of regaining one’s life.
