Birds of Paradise #BirdsParadise
Kathy Handley
Birds of Paradise tells the story of a lonely, long-haul trucker, Joe-Mack, who picks up a runaway, Freddie, in Las Vegas and drops him in Hollywood, offering to help him if needed. When the call comes, he reaches out to the boy and becomes embroiled in the lives of homeless kids. Set in California’s beautiful, yet challenging neighborhoods, the characters take on risks and maintain thin threads of dignity amidst troubling situations.
