A group of chickens living on an egg farm find themselves in hot water when the farmer decides that a new line of chicken pies might be good for business. Before long, an escape plan is hatched! This fun take on The Great Escape was Aardman’s first feature film and is still just as fresh, plucky and creative as it was 21 years ago.
