Boyhood camaraderie triumphs over clerical authority in this sweet-hearted short set in a 1950s orphanage. Young troublemaker Cowboy (Scott Graham) befriends the orphanage’s newest arrival, a bizarre young boy who believes he is a chicken and who earns himself the name who earns himself the name ‘Cluck’ (Adam Carolan). With Cluck’s eccentricities threatening his safety, Cowboy and his friends are forced into action to save him from institutional care.
