Synopsis With Eep! Mieke de Jong embarks on the delicate job of adapting the successful homonym children’s novel by Joke van Leeuwen, about a girl with traits that remind a bird and with feathers rather than hands. Warre and Tine are a childless couple. While on a bird-watching excursion, Warre finds a tiny girl with bird’s wings and decides to take it home where they name her Birdie and start taking care of her. The couple soon takes to liking the child, and Tine releases her motherly instincts, repressed until now, caring for Birdie. Nature’s call is however too strong, and when it is the time of year for the flock of birds to fly southwards Birdie is unable to resist the instinct of joining them, and therefore flies away. Warre and Tine mount an endless search. Meanwhile, Birdie meets other people wanting to keep her as theirs—like keeping a bird in a cage. But the sea cannot be walled, and it is impossible to stop earth’s cycles.
