What happens when a boyhood passion grows into a destructive obsession?  Poached reveals the bizarre underworld of illegal egg collecting by following convicted egg offenders as they evade an army of bird lovers and wildlife crime police during "Operation Easter" in Britain.  Egg thieves are motivated not by money but by desire for the beauty of the egg and the thrill of the chase.  Thousands of eggs confiscated in police raids have been found strapped under beds, beneath floorboards, and in secret rooms. With unprecedented access to the most notorious and inconspicuous perpetrators, Poached delves into the psychology of obsession as the egg collectors confront their destructive behavior.

By Director, Timothy Wheeler (The Other Shore, Whale Wars), Producer, Steve Brown (Spark: A Burning Man Story, Twinsters), featuring an original score by Mark Orton (Nebraska). See the film's trailer at: http://www.poachedmovie.com/
