After the death of their newborn baby, Lily attempts suicide and is subsequently admitted to a mental health clinic while Jack remains in the "real" world, dealing with his own guilt and a crippling internal struggle to live with a dark secret. As if Jack's troubles were bad enough, a starling bird that has nested in his backyard begins to harass and attack him. This starling comes to represent all of Jack's problems and he becomes comically obsessed with killing it. Jack eventually finds guidance from Larry, a quirky psychologist-turned veterinarian with a troubled past of his own. The two form a unique and unlikely friendship as both help the other to explore, acknowledge and confront their problems.
