The answer, in a sense, comes from above in the form of a feeble sparrow he finds in the isolation yard. Stroud brings this newfound companion to his cell, nurses it to health and, from that point on, there's no turning back. Despite having only a third grade education, and no hope of parole, Stroud becomes a renowned ornithologist and achieves a greater sense of freedom and purpose behind prison walls than many in the outside world will ever know... The "finest prison picture ever made" (Variety), this inspirational and compelling classic stars Burt Lancaster in an Oscar-nominated performance as Stroud -- the convict who, in his power to heal birds, finds the power to heal himself.

Based on the true story of Robert Stroud, as told by Tom Gaddis in his renowned biography. Hardened murderer Stroud (Burt Lancaster) is a withdrawn prison inmate who discovers a way of dealing with his isolation when he begins to care for a sick bird, nurses it back to health, develops an interest in ornithology, and becomes a world authority on the subject. Even when he is transferred to the notorious 'Rock' in San Francisco Bay, his interest does not abate.
