Mdm TAN is a lonely 60 year old lady who lives alone in Sin Ming Avenue. Her life took a complete turn when she sees the local authorities catching wild chickens in her estate.

As Mdm TAN learns to live with them and develop a bond, she realises that it won't be long before the authorities will catch up to her.
