Chirp’s mother has just been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and her once happy family is now crumbling apart. Even Chirp’s birds don’t give her solace anymore. Chirp’s father feels that he can’t take care of his wife and has her sent to the “nut house,” resulting in an even more fractured family.
