Description

This short film captures a man with his pet budgie.

The film opens with dark footage of a bird cage, it fills the shot. A bird is inside swinging on a perch. A hand comes into frame and takes the bird out of the cage. It hops around on the table playing with an empty spool and other items. It carries them around the table and plays in the spool.

A man sits beside the cage with the bird on his hand, and he whistles to the bird. In the next shot the bird is sitting on his head, and the man is smiling at the camera. A hand feeds the bird in the final shot.
