A young biracial girl named Birdie is being raised by her Jewish mom. She spends a rare visitation day with her father while preparing for her Bat Mitzvah. They share a meal and she begins to overcome her doubts about him and decides to risk inviting him back into her life. BROKEN BIRD is about Birdie confronting what independence means as she steps into adulthood on her own terms.

Starring Indigo Hubbard-Salk (Netflix's SHE'S GOTTA HAVE IT) and Chad L. Coleman (THE WIRE), director Rachel Harrison-Gordon creates a wonderful coming-of-age tale of a girl caught between two worlds.
