Storyline

A sassy parrot and a free-spirited librarian upend the well-ordered life of a solitary man. Lyman (Jackson Hurst) is a loner, working the graveyard shift for the Courtesy Patrol. Orphaned by a car wreck that killed his parents when he was four years old, he knows only his last name and approximate year of birth. When a green parrot flies in to his trailer and announces, 'Shut up!" and "I'm an eagle!" he becomes obsessed with finding its owner, which leads him to FIONA (Rachel Nichols). She has been eying Lyman from a distance and decides to help with his parrot search, whether he wants her to or not. Along with her basset hound, they set out on a quest to find the bird's previous owners and Fiona begins to unravel the mysteries of Lyman's past. But when Fiona joins Lyman on his nightly rounds, she witnesses a reality more intense than the romantic version she had envisioned. Ultimately, once Lyman is able to reconcile with is past, he is able to break free of his dark world and they ... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Some details about the parrot's life with his various owners: The original owners were Gypsies, but nothing is known from that period. The Campbells named him 'Mr. Roosevelt', and he learned to say their phone number "MA 17". Nothing specific is said about his time with Emma Cowen. The Hall's mentally challenged son learned to speak from the parrot. Duncan Weber owned him as a child, and called him 'Tonto'. Eli Stowalski got him in 1968, where he learned to say "I'm an eagle". In 1979 the Ballards named him 'Shelton', and he learned to say "prepare to meet your maker". The Murray Retirement Home got rid of him for repeatedly saying "prepare to meet your maker". In the Reeves home he learned to say "shut up". And finally, Lyman names him 'Zane'. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Margie: Upside down people, the graveyard shift. Whatever you call us. We're the ones working at night while you sleep. We look out for each other. Or, I looked out for Lyman, and he looked out for everyone else. But off the road he thought everyone else had read the big instruction manual. Lyman wasn't gonna talk until he had it all figured out. Riding that highway loop night after night was the only job he'd ever had, unless you count all the classes he took at the Community College.

Amazing film
27 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I seen your film in Gainesville, Georgia, through the Arts Council, before it made its premier. I thought it was a wonderful film. The story and characters were very believable. The range of emotions caught me by surprise, I realized that I was drawn into this endearing film. You feel the happiness, sadness, shock, loss, and amazement. It was thoroughly enjoyable. You learned the characters depth as the film progressed. The film presented itself on par with high budget films, very professional. The ending was a surprise and welcomed. I can hardly wait to buy it, I feel it is something I could watch many times over. Congratulations on a great film and wish you all the success for your hard work.
