On the road of life, there are many choices, and each has its own message and journey. If you're looking to find your inner pathway to peace and freedom, then let The Lobster and the Chicken show you the way.
Witty and irreverent, this charming fable for adults tells of a chicken from Hope, New Jersey, who befriends a lobster unwilling to leave the protection of his castle. After persuading him to venture out into the world, the chicken and the lobster set out on a magical expedition to discover the answers to life.
Along their voyage, the chicken and the lobster meet the frosty Ice Princess, witness a battle between army ants, explore the cave of the ancient lobsters, and even visit the glamorous Sparkle City. And after each stop they make, another piece of their personal "baggage" falls behind, leading them further down the path to enlightenment. In the end, the two will discover that it is not the destination, but the journey that matters most.
