In 1970s Belfast, two boys discover the facts of life with help from their two pet chickens.

James and Malachy are over the moon when their father brings home two baby chicks which they name Boogaloo and Graham. The chicks grow and the boys proudly carry them wherever they go. They declare themselves vegetarian and dream of running their own chicken farm where Boogaloo and Graham will be happiest. Little do they know that big changes are coming to the family very soon…
