12-year old Max is upset, he’s been forced to close his “business” and move to the countryside with his quirky father. When Max discovers free run chickens in his cousin Charles’ abandoned barn, a new business idea captures his imagination. Seeing a gap in the egg market for organic, farm-to-table offerings, Max puts his ingenuity to work to prove he’s got what it takes to make it as a businessman and surprisingly to him… A chicken farmer. With a bit of innocent charm and a lot of sweat equity, can the kids bring their entrepreneurial aspirations to fruition within the ridiculous reams of red tape laid out by Quebec’s regulatory system? Max sure thinks it’s possible, and his hyper-fixated vision gives the others hope. A heartwarming story of community care and the need for responsible small businesses to make their own seat at the table.
