All is not what it seems when Lucy and Dane conspire a breakout from their mythical island cell. Alternating between 16mm film, digital and 2D animation, Jailbirds is a figurative tale about hope, imagination and the human need for togetherness.

After a Valentine’s Day shoot, it was post-produced at EFILM.
