Three elderly hermits live deep in the Québec 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. After the death of the eldest hermit, the two women make an astonishing discovery: hundreds of paintings echoing his tragic experience related to that devastating fire. And There Birds Rained Down is adapted from A story of intertwined destinies, where love can happen at any age. And The Birds Rained Down was adapted from the book of the same title by Jocelyne Saucier. It was selected to have its World Premiere at TIFF 2019 and to be the opening film at the Quebec City Film Festival.
