When a magic trick goes awry at a children’s birthday party, the authoritative father of the family turns into a chicken. An avalanche of coincidental absurdities befalls everyone; the mother, whose mundane life was dedicated to her husband and children, is now urged to take care of her family. While moving heaven and earth to bring her husband back and secure their survival, she goes through a total transformation.
