About BIRD
an exploration of the personal account of a man who killed his son, when he became convinced that the boy was possessed by something demonic. Evaluating psychologists thought that he was insane at the time of the event, whereas the medico legal council overruled the verdict and called him a coldblooded killer. In a series of letters from prison he describes how he came to his belief, and after years of trying to put the crime behind him, he tries to remember the events as they unfolded.
