Synopsis

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 come to the fore and 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.
