The chicken incident is an end-of-course short film by several students in the 3rd year of the Cinema course at Universidade Lusófona. In this short-film, we follow several hunters and their struggle to find the Chicken that lays Golden Eggs.

The chicken Incident is an end-of-course short film by several students of the 3rd year of the Cinema course at the Lusófona University of Humanities and Technologies.

Synopsis:

During one night, a group of detectives discover the whereabouts of a hen that lays golden eggs. It is found in the house of a man named Arthur. When they arrive at the house, they find Artur tied to a chair and catch the chicken. A boy appears at the door of the house and starts shooting, killing the two investigators. The boy takes Arthur and the chicken who puts it in the back seat of the car and Arthur in the trunk. At the wheel is the boy's girlfriend. She drives until she reaches a bridge where these three characters are going to be shot to death by two unknown silhouettes and the chicken runs away into the woods, causing no one to catch her in the end.
