Tito and the Birds is a film about a little boy and his journey to save the world from a “fright epidemic” in which people start to get sick if they are suddenly scared.
Tito is a shy 10 year old kid living a normal life, hanging with his two best friends, struggling with the popular kids at school and his neurotic mother at home. After the fright epidemic breaks, Tito sets out on a search for the antidote. He finds out that the cure is somehow related to his father’s research – which was focused on the songs birds sing. His father is an inventor who had to leave home when he was 6 years old – something that we see in the beginning of the movie. Tito’s search for the antidote indirectly becomes a search for his missing father and for his own identity.
Part action part drama, Tito’s journey is at once an uplifting and insightful adventure about a boy fighting to find out what is right and to learn how to overcome his own fears.
