A little girl, Kara, stays with her grandmother because her parents are fighting. There, she befriends a chicken, but her grandmother is not comfortable with her close relationship with the chicken. Her grandmother persuades her mother to take Kara home. Kara gives the chicken a can-phone before she leaves, so that she can continue to communicate with the chicken.
To help her parents reconcile, Kara gives a can-phone to her parents too. And she tells the chicken about it although she knows the chicken will not reply. Or, will it?
