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 as 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.

A debut for Omar El Zohairy, who previously directed the short THE AFTERMATH OF THE INAUGURATION OF THE PUBLIC TOILET AT KILOMETRE 375, selected for the Cinéfondation competition at Cannes in 2014.
