Tungrus observes a week in the peculiar lives of a middle-class suburban Mumbai household, which is turned topsy-turvy when they adopt a chicken as a pet. The once adorable chick soon grows into a hell-raising rooster, taking up too much of their space, defecating on their spotless floors, bullying their cats, crowing at ungodly hours, and generally making their life miserable. And as the rooster’s fate hangs in the balance, the family members debate the question that lingers in the air: should he be given the gift of life, or served for dinner?
