"Birds of a Feather" is currently in development to be filmed in Milwaukee, WI. 
An urban character drama, it is the story of a blue collar loner who takes in a young girl facing foster-care but must peel back the layers of his own childhood drama before he can save her from the same fate.

Exploring the topics of childhood PTSD and trauma, this film brings together two unlikely individuals under a rare circumstance, blending fantastical flashbacks into a muted Midwest backdrop.

Writer and Director: Marisa Merkl
Director of Photography: Daniel Andera

Lead Producer: DeChantel Kosmatka

We are currently in search of investors. Interested in hearing more about this film?
