Synopsis by Maggie Sadler

On the heels of a significant and heart-wrenching loss, Jack (Chris O'Dowd) grapples with his grief in a mental institution, leaving his wife Lilly (Melissa McCarthy) to face the hardship on her own. In her quest for catharsis, Lilly takes up a gardening project that stokes the ire of a territorial starling. Yet as Lilly learns more about the starling's behavior from the unconventional psychologist-turned-veterinarian Larry (Kevin Kline), she takes positive steps toward healing, both for herself and her husband. Directed by Theodore Melfi. Co-starring Timothy Olyphant.
