Northeastern Africa on the eve of the millennium. The daughter of American missionaries and a local teenage girl steal into a darkened church to seal their love in a secret, makeshift wedding ceremony. But when the civil war encroaches on their union, they cannot escape its reach. Confronting the religious and cultural roots of intolerance, Cardboard Piano explores the human capacity for hatred, forgiveness, and love.

Under a tangle of branches, children play war games with birds. A boy waits in the shadows. Soldiers defend their country. Bird Fire Fly examines the transformation of fear into violence, the perpetuation of oppression, and the fight to be free.

The war is finally over. General Michail proposes to Grotilde—so she skips ahead and plans the inevitable, but festive, divorce. Meanwhile, the weather is playing tricks on people, as is The President, and Grotilde's son won't accept the armistice. In this comedy of no manners, everyone is normible (both normal and terrible all at once).
