Synopsis

In trouble with his captain, Kansas City Detective Lt. Randy Benton is given the thankless job of doing one final walk-through inspection of the once grand, now derelict Union Station just prior to its massive renovation into a modern galleria. Then he discovers Birdie, an old homeless man who claims to be an escaped lunatic and who has been living in and under the railroad station since 1933. Birdie desperately begs Randy's help in finding the friend who saved his life long ago, but Benton begins to find far more questions about Birdie's past than answers. A constantly surprising tour de force for an ensemble of actors spanning nearly a century of adventure, crime, love and loss, Flying Crows is a moving, multilayered story about old friendships, broken minds, and some vital loose ends from a massacre everyone thought was solved long ago.
