When a magician’s trick goes wrong at the six-year-old Mando’s birthday party, an avalanche of coincidental absurdities befalls the boy’s family. The magician turns Sami, the authoritative father, into a chicken and fails to bring him back. The mysterious transformation of the father sets the family off on a tragically absurd adventure of self- discovery to survive without him.
