Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Cuckoo Bird is the stark tale of a punctured marriage. Despite their long union, a middle-aged couple has never truly been happy due to the husband's (Kenneth Welsh) many affairs. His latest dalliance is the last straw; it's now up to him to try to patch things. This 90-minute drama was originally made for Canadian television in 1985. It premiered over the American Lifetime Cable service one year later (inappropriately during the Christmas season).
