Ray, 56, is confronted with his past when Una, 27, appears by surprise at his workplace. Guilt, anger, strong and raw emotions arise as they recall the passionate relationship they both lived 15 years ago. Blackbird speaks of a delicate subject with sensitivity and without moral judgment. It questions the limits of our ways of perceiving of life, of our taboos, of our conceptions of love and abuse.
