The birds and the ants are set to invade your house. Somewhere else, there is a war. Where are you needed the most? Who are you going to take care of? Who is going to take care of you?

Louisy and Syl live happily together in the safety of their tree house, until Syl decides to perform heroic deeds in a far away, war-torn land. Alone for the first time, Louisy falls victim to the whims of the birds and ants at her doorstep. Abroad, Syl finds that the line between good and bad is not as clear as she had expected. Bird House is a fantastical exploration of loyalty, loss, and what it means to do the right thing.
