Synopsis

This documentary focuses on the extraordinary array of wild birds who grace Manhattan's celebrated patch of green and the equally colorful, full-of-attitude New Yorkers who schedule their lives around the rhythms of migration. Acclaimed author Jonathan Franzen, an idiosyncratic trombone technician, a charming fashion-averse teenager and a bird-tour leader who's recorded every sighting she's made since the 1940s are among the film's cast of characters. Spectacular wildlife footage capturing the changing seasons takes the viewer to a dazzling world that goes all but unnoticed by the 38 million people who visit America's most famous park each year.
