        Feathers And Teeth

Feathers And Teeth

On a spring evening in 1976, in the quaint kitchen of a nice Midwestern home, Carol makes a pot roast and Chris listens to rock and roll records. But when Arthur accidentally runs over a mysterious creature with his car, he unwittingly cracks open the full force of grief, suspicion and vengeance that lies just below the family's pristine surface. Part dark fairy tale and part revenge tragedy, Feathers and Teeth' is about just how far we can be carried away by the strength of our convictions.
