Synopsis:
2 Birds takes place during one bright summer night and follows a group of young teenagers on a journey from innocence to adulthood. The main character is a timid boy who has a typical schoolboy crush on a girl his age, who happens to be a friend of his mate.
2 Birds are the second film of Runarsson’s Crossroad trilogy. The first one is the award winning and Oscar nominated short film The Last Farm.

Directors statement for 2 Birds

People at crossroads in their live interests me.
The questions they are confronted with , in balance with the choices they have.
I wanted to make a film about adolescents and love , a boy becoming a man.

I had the opportunity to watch the film at Sundance 08' it was incredibly good, the story line and direction were fantastic, its a bittersweet story that reaches your heart to the very core.
