Our screenplay is based on the short story EATING by Rick Bass


An owl swooping too close to traffic gets caught in a canoe strapped to a pickup and is inadvertently carried along by Russell and Sissy, a young misfit couple in the beginnings of falling in love on a trip in the mountains.  In route to their destination they decide to stop for breakfast at a roadside diner, owl in tow.  The locals observe, with fascination, Russell’s unstoppable appetite and the owl the couple has mistakenly kidnapped.  Our story captures the magic of love and the relationships that exist between humans and the landscape in which they live.
