When Lesley, the local school bus driver, becomes distracted during her end-of-day inspection, she fails to notice a sleeping boy in the back of the bus. What happens next shatters the tranquility of her small Maine logging town, proving that even the slightest actions have enormous consequences. stricken by an overwhelming sense of guilt, lesley’s fragility is further tested by her husband – a local logger preoccupied by the imminent closing of the town paper mill – and the boy’s mother Marla, a disaffected young woman looking to take advantage of a delicate situation. shot on location in the stark, frozen Maine hills, lance edmands’s debut BLUEBiRD fosters a profound sense of place – chillingly capturing the setting’s lonely yet beautiful tone – thanks to the masterwork of cinematographer Jody Lee lipes.

In the presence of Lance Edmands.
