"Songbird" is a taut thriller in the spirit of "Paranormal Activity" and "Cloverfield". It takes place two years in the future, and the pandemic has not gone away. Lockdowns have been rolled back and then reinstated and it becomes even more serious as the virus continues to mutate.
"Songbird" is also a love story. Told from street level through the eyes of the characters, In a feeble attempt to keep the sickness contained, the city has been bisected into haves and have nots. The film centers around an essential worker who has a rare immunity, a delivery man who delivers goods and hope throughout the city. Like the vast majority of the population, his girlfriend is locked within her home, and the couple has no ability to physically be together. To be with the one he loves, the protagonist must overcome martial law, murderous vigilantes and a powerful, well connected family, helmed by a matriarch (played by Moore) who will stop at nothing to protect her family and maintain her way of life.
"Songbird" is a story about the resilience of the human spirit and the idea that hope is worth fighting for.
