Gail is too preoccupied with the exponential death of her honeybees to be sympathetic to the marital strife of the grown daughter who has moved home just in time for the town ‘Turkey Days’ celebration. As they attempt to negotiate their own sticky relationship, both women’s lives are complicated by birds, bees, and “the birds and the bees.” A laugh-out-loud comedy about love, sex, science, and the artificial insemination of turkeys! The Birds and the Bees is a hilarious romp with a huge heart.
