Written by Roslyn Muir (Anatomy of Deception) and produced by Imperative Pictures, the film follows a single mother of two who has been diagnosed with cancer and embarks on a quest to re-connect with her estranged birth mother to find a family for her children.

Producers on the project include Alexandra Raffé (Kim’s Convenience), Ines Eisses (Juggernaut) and exec producer Carol Whiteman (Never Steady, Never Still).

The Birdwatcher was previously nominated for nine Leo Awards, picking up the prize for best director of a motion picture award. The feature also won the award for best Canadian feature at Toronto’s Female Eye Film Festival in 2016 among other accolades.
