A visual journey following one of the world's most expensive foods. From its creation in the remote island caves of the Philippines, to its transformation into the legendary Cantonese dish of "Bird's Nest Soup" at a 3 Michelin star restaurant, this film examines this strange delicacy, and the different lives that are touched by it. Morro Creative produced this epic short documentary across 3 countries and then brought it back to our Toronto basecamp for post-production and finishing.  More info:  www.nestsofgold.com​​​​​​​
