Brief synopsis

For the funeral of a loved one, six school friends come together again after a long time. The weekend, when they are supposed to be taking care of Simon, brings up old feelings, secrets come to light, and presents the six with new challenges that push relationships and friendships to their limits.
Migratory Birds is an open, honest look at the relationships and problems of twenty-somethings, which is above all about one thing: what it means to live.
