Mr and Mrs Tweedy run a failing fowl farm. Their plans to diversify into chicken pies fills their imprisoned hens with horror but the appearance of Rocky the circus rooster gives them a glimmer of hope, and an escape plan is hatched. This parody of WWII escape films is witty, imaginative and as technically great as you would expect from the Aardman team.
