Richard, 15 with learning difficulties, longs to put down roots but his restless and destructive brother, Polly, needs to keep moving.

When the land they live on is bought by a new landowner, and the electricity supply to their caravan is cut, their already precarious living conditions get even worse. 

A chance meeting with the new landowner's daughter, 17 year old Annabel, leaves Richard besotted; whilst Polly befriends the guys who run a seedy traveling fair.

Richards optimistic view on life becomes increasingly difficult to maintain as Polly's abusive behaviour worsens, family secrets are revealed, and he is torn between loyalty to his brother and his first true friend in Annabel. 

For better or worse, Richards life is about to change forever.

Critically acclaimed and well-received, this exclusive screening is the Welsh Premiere of the movie Chicken, and features a unique introduction from the director and lead actor - not to be missed. 

This feature film will be screened with short movie: Orchard Way: Our Way,  A short film detailing an innovative and exciting piece of support work which has enabled three young men to move into their own home with decreasing support and increasing independence.
