A talented young turkey moves from a small town to Birdland to make her dreams come true but has to navigate the shadier parts of the entertainment industry.
Think "La La Land," set in an animated world of birds, about Anamazie, a little turkey with big dreams of making it as a performer in BIRDLAND. She finds that the big city is a chicken and hen kinda town, but overcomes the odds with help from a crew of "others" just like her.
The essence of the story is the same, Anamazie, a small-town turkey, pursues an acting/ musical theater-esque dream, pushed along the way by a mother married to the idea that her kid is as good as they get in Gobbler's Glen. This turkey-themed town is charming, simple, and overly sincere to its innocent fault. Mom's right, but let's face it – her kid's a big bird in a little barn...*
Anamazie gets discovered in much the same manner as the book, the exception being that the scout is "Mother Hen," an aggressive, no-nonsense agent working in Birdland, a town of big-name talent with nothing but chickens and roosters topping the roster of A-listers. Turkeys are just that in Birdland, no more than comic relief, regulated to supporting roles devoted to pratfalls, punch lines, and pigeon poop. Suddenly, it's up to Anamazie and her recently shoved-to-the-sidelines mother to overcome the prejudices of Mother Hen and the entire town's turkey-typecasting in time to land a leading role in Birdland's next big blockbuster.
*Let the ever-present bird lexicon begin.
