Two boyhood friends return scarred from Vietnam. One is institutionalized for thinking he is the bird creature that he imagined as a child, and the other—physically handicapped but of sound mind—tries to reach his friend to discover what caused his retreat from reality. The film illustrates the human yearning to remember oneself as a spirit free of earthly suffering, and how the mind creates personal myths to sustain spirit and body.
