Rare Birds

Rare Birds In the tradition of ''Saving Grace'' and ''Waking Ned Devine'' comes the comedy about how far people will go to maintain their grip on life.

Dave Purcell just woke up on the wrong side of life. He has become painfully aware that his marriage isn't just on life support — it's dead. Perhaps worst of all, The Auk, his failing restaurant, just went belly up. It seems he has no way out, until...

Dave's eccentric neighbout Alphonse hatches a fly-by-night scheme to bolster his buddy's sagging fortunes. After staging the sighting of an extinct bird in the neighbourhood, bird watchers and hungry patrons the world over flock to the area. The hoax succeeds far beyond anyone's expectations and business booms, but Alphonse is hiding a few dark secrets which soon has the Auk swirling with controversy. Now with the threat of exposure and the authorities swooping in, will feathers fly?
