The residents of the prosperous town of St-Victor can’t bear being woken up every morning, even on holidays, at 4 a.m. by the mayor’s rooster. They come up with a plan to get rid of it. The bird is traded for a donkey who’s supposed to bring good luck. However, the outcome predicted by their mayor comes true: the villagers sleep in every morning and worse, neglect their work. The farmer doesn’t take care of his crops. The baker doesn’t bake bread. The handyman doesn’t do anything at all. Feeling that their village’s existence is threatened, a small group of citizens decide to get the rooster back.
