The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill

Storyline

The true story of a Bohemian St. Francis and his remarkable relationship with a flock of wild red-and-green parrots. Mark Bittner, a dharma bum*, former street musician in San Francisco, falls in with the flock as he searches for meaning in his life, unaware that the wild parrots will bring him everything he needs.

*Dharma bum (per Gary Snyder): “A homeless seeker of truth”
