Green and Purple Birds with Bright Orange Feet
A gentle island enchanted by a myth of the sea. A young boy drawn to adventure.
Will his father’s stories be his guide, or will the dark forest swallow his search for purpose?
When a boy meets two curious friends in a dream, purpose and adventure claw at his spirit. Embarking on a fantastical quest away from the safety of his familiar gold sand, he uncovers the truth behind his wise father’s lessons and the wicked path his brother followed. Deep in the forest, a great fire watches the boy’s quest, peering through the dense palms, eager to claim his life and the lives of those he meets. Its vile captives dance about, sneaking and hunting after their elusive prey.
Will his strange new friends and father’s stories save his life? Or will the boy’s investigation into the mythical sea man — the one who knows how to end suffering — follow his brother’s fate?
