Benjamin and Maya share a life and an apartment in the center of Oslo.
On the occasion of Benjamin's 26th birthday, Tobias --
Benjamin's younger and more successful brother -- comes to visit for the
weekend. During a late night dinner party with friends, Maya tells a story
about a sexual experience she had in Brazil. As a consequence,
Benjamin's insecurities and vulnerabilities begin to surface. Bird Hearts
is a film about gender roles and jealousy, sex and family - and the tricky
power of the stories lovers tell.
