Very moving film about a murderer who, during three years of solitary confinement in prison, starts looking after birds and eventually becomes a respected expert in treating bird diseases. But rather than use him as an example of how people can change in prison, the authorities keep trying to stop him from his attempts to help injured and ill birds. The film is all the more powerful for its low-key approach.
