Synopsis

What is the fate of an aging house? The Bird House explores the tense relationship between two brothers, an aging Father, a Maid and the Old House.

Two brothers oppose one another's attempts to exploit their pre-war "Straits Ecletic" style house in small historical town, Melaka. Hua hopes to supplement his income by venturing into the birds' nest (a popular dessert among the Chinese community) market but he would have to convert the house into a large bird house. Keat plans to save the home by converting it into an antique shop. Meanwhile, the aging father, like the old house, says little but feels everything. The Bird House will explore the tensions between ancient and modernity, human desire and morality.
