In this stop-motion animated feature, the chickens on a doomed egg farm in Northern England suspect their end is near and plot an escape. All their efforts fail until a rooster named Rocky tumbles onto the farm and gives the chickens new inspiration and hope. Rocky has escaped from a circus and claims he can fly. Can he teach them to fly over the fence before the farmers turn them all into pies? Chicken Run is a romance, a prisoner escape drama and a dark comedy all in one.
