Red is a pathologically shy, middle-aged man who is married to a small bird: a lovely, but dangerous cardinal called Birdie. Red is on the precipice of fulfilling his life-long ambition of riding his favourite roller coaster for the ten thousandth time when an unusual thing happens: the turkey sandwich that he has prepared for lunch suddenly comes to life. To Red’s shock and distress, the sandwich informs him that Birdie is contemplating leaving him, and that he must choose between her and the roller coaster. What ensues is a tense struggle between Red and the sandwich, who grows increasingly belligerent. Red tries desperately to keep alive his roller coaster dream, without losing his only love.
