I was glued to this film, and enjoyed its stunning cinemagraphy and editing. The basic vibe is of awe and cosmic humor, wonder, and goodness in spite of it all......so we see a re-enactment , brilliantly filmed , of an experience of one person's quest for enlightenment, via his adopted family of wild turkeys......and we get to know
some of them....Swee-pea, Turkey-Boy, and we care.....and it is magic....to see Joe Hutto's "children", soon grow, thrive, and eventually, outgrow their odd relationship with Joe, and ultimately, their natural wild behaviour. It is revealed towards the end, that all the communication, relationship bond, was perhaps a fortunate,or un-fortunate, temporary thing...........as the turkey dna clicks in and reminds them they ARE WILD, and the results are both sad and wonderfull, and very heartfelt......but filmed with respect and magic, for both , the wild turkeys, and their adoptive parent. This is truly a special informative, and entertaining filmed account of our universal quest for meaning, love, understanding, everything else. I think this documentary is just one of a very few about wild turkeys, and is a marvel to behold!
