In the tiny castle town of Berat, Albania, each family is bustling in preparation for a grand turkey feast for tonight's New Year's celebration. A sensitive and restless young boy, overlooked by his parents and rejected by his schoolyard peers, finds himself on an adventure of a lifetime when he accidentally lets the wily family turkey - tonight's main course - escape the pen, leading to a thrilling chase throughout the labyrinthine cobblestone fortress, which will take both adversaries to their wits' end. With every epic twist and turn, the question remains: Who will prevail: boy or bird?
