Movie Info

Three elderly hermits live deep in the woods, cut off from the rest of the world. While wildfires threaten the region, their quiet life is about to be shaken by the arrival of two women... A luminous octogenarian, unjustly institutionalized her whole life, and a young photographer charged with interviewing survivors of the region's deadliest forest fire.​ And The Birds Rained Down is the story of intertwined destinies, where love can happen at any age and new life emerges in unexpected places.

It's a bittersweet tale, the mood perhaps best summed up by one of Rafaëlle's subjects, talking about the effects of the ancient conflagration that sundered families and singed romances.
