Screen Media Films and Focus World have released the official synopsis for ‘A Birder’s Guide to Everything’:

David Portnoy (Kodi Smit-McPhee), a 15-year-old birding fanatic, makes an unbelievable discovery: he might have taken a photo of a supposedly extinct duck that hasn’t been seen in North America since 1878. Upon the counsel of the Young Birders Society, David’s high school birding club, he takes his finding to a legendary ornithologist, Dr. Konrad (Academy Award-winner Ben Kingsley) to solidify the claim. With his original photo too blurry to confirm bird’s identity, Konrad recommends they find the duck again before it migrates in order to get a better account of this lazarus species, but this time using a quality camera.

David and his ragtag birding crew (Alex Wolff, Michael Chen) embark on an epic road trip to solidify their place in birding history – and with girls. Enter Ellen (Katie Chang), who is in possession of the quality camera they seek and tags along under one stipulation: she takes the first photo of the rare duck. As they encounter other birders and a certain doctor who just might want to steal their claim, what initially seemed like fun exercise in birding could turn into a journey of discovery in more ways than they all hoped.
