On a Yorkshire chicken farm in 1950's England, any chicken who does not meet Mrs. Tweedy's (Richardson) quota of eggs will be fried, baked or boiled.

When a dashing American rooster named Rocky (Gibson) arrives, he soon falls in love with one of the hens, Ginger (Sawahla). Having been hopelessly repressed and facing eventual death, the two love birds decided to rebel against the evil Mr. and Mrs. Tweedy, the farms owners.

In order to escape, Rocky and Ginger must devise a plan brilliant enough to avoid the ferocious dogs guarding their pen.
