They are prisoners trapped behind barbed wire, fearing for their very lives and dreaming only of the outside world. Every escape attempt is thwarted, and the ringleader tossed into solitary to do hard time. But this is no ordinary prison...and these are no ordinary jailbirds. They're the inmates at Tweedy's Egg Farm, where any chicken who doesn't put breakfast on the table can wind up as dinner. But Ginger and her fellow flock are determined to break out before they meet a "fowl" fate. Time is running out as the greedy owner of the farm, Mrs. Tweedy, finds a new way to feather her own nest turning chickens into chicken pies. Now, with the help of Rocky, "the lone free ranger," the chickens hatch their most spectacular plan to fly the coop in our story of poultry in motion "Chicken Run".
