    The film tells the story of “a young farm girl who wanders off into a forest reserve in the Philippines. Deep within the reservation, she mistakenly shoots and kills a critically endangered and protected Philippine eagle. As the local authorities begin a manhunt to track down the poacher of a national bird, their investigation leads them to an even more horrific discovery,” as described on Birdshot’s Facebook page.
