Description

Tom and Charlie are living out what's left of their lives on their own terms in a remote forest, two pot growers their only connection to the outside world. But then two women arrive - a photographer on the trail of survivors of a decades-ago forest fire and an elderly escapee from a psychiatric institution - and everything changes.

Originally published in French, And the Birds Rained Down, the recipient of several prizes, is a haunting meditation on aging and self-determination.
