The Bird Cottage

The house is a nice, middle-class home in England. The children all have their own rooms. Every Easter, Lorelei hosts an Easter egg hunt in the back garden. The house is disheveled and cluttered when the children are young. Over time is becomes more and more cluttered and claustrophobic as Lorelei’s hoarding worsens. Ultimately, there is barely a path wide enough for one person to get through to get anywhere in the house. The only room untouched by the hoarding is Rhys’ bedroom. After the divorce, a wall is built to separate the cottage into two and Colin lives in the other side.
