Nobody saw this happen so it may or may not be true.
A woman lives in the middle of a city, next to a tree that smells of lemons. In this tree lives a family of crows, but their home is threatened by developers looking to build inner city apartments where factories and shops used to be. One day, the child of the crows falls from the nest. As night falls, the neighbourhood cats move in for the kill. The woman intervenes and her encounter with the crows and their child transforms her life and ultimately transforms her.
Told by real life family, Maude Davey, David Pidd and their children, Alice (17) and Leo (10) in the tradition of travelling show biz troupes of old, The Crow Family shares this urban parable alongside songs, confessions, tales of famous and infamous families, Alice and Leo’s rule for being a good parent, and servings of cake. It’s about urban scavengers and what we can learn from them, about children growing up and leaving home, about taking care of the world we share with birds and beasts. The Crow Family is an insight into the delicate and difficult business of being a family.
