This visually imaginative animated film pits an innocent chicken against a vicious killer, who wants his lost iron helmet back. The white chicken finds the helmet and in her innocence thinks that it would make a fine nest for her eggs. She dreams of her future family with little chicks, until the crafty killer suddenly appears. Assuming various disguises he tries to get the helmet back so he can return to fighting. The chicken, however, does not give in so easily. The film’s animators perfectly capture the image of an uncontrollable, wicked villain.
