Sixteen-year-old Romantic James Whitman struggles to overcome anxiety and depression by seeking advice from the only psychoanalyst whom he can afford: an imaginary pigeon named Dr. Bird. In his magical realism inspired world, James goes on a whimsical, but emotionally charged search to solve the mystery of his sister’s disappearance from home, while taking advice from a talking photograph of the famed poet Walt Whitman (no relation) and accompanied by his first love-a precocious girl from school who has her own agenda.
