Matthew Modine and Nicolas Cage star in this 1980s US drama based on the novel by William Wharton.
Vietnam veteran Birdy (Modine) has always had an almost obsessive affinity with birds, but following his traumatic wartime experiences is now convinced that he has been transformed into one, and is confined to a military psychiatric hospital as a result.
In an attempt to get through to him, Birdys doctor brings in his best friend, Al Columbato (Cage), who was himself wounded in Vietnam.
Al tries to break Birdys silence by recalling the carefree days of their youth, and becomes determined to bring his friend back to reality.
