The cast features J.C. Cutler and Angela Timberman as Nat and Diane, respectively, Summer Hagen as Julia and Stephen Yoakam as the cryptic, watchful neighbor Tierney.
"In an isolated, abandoned house," according to the Guthrie, "strangers Nat and Diane take refuge from the unnerving masses of birds that attack everyone around them. They find relative sanctuary but not comfort or peace: there’s no electricity, little food and the birds always return. And they worry about a nearby neighbor, who may or may not still be alive and watching them. Soon another refugee, the young, attractive Julia, arrives with some news of the outside world but her presence also brings discord. The uncertain survival of the three becomes even more doubtful when paranoia creeps into their little refuge, adding an internal threat to match the external threat of the birds."
