In distant future, The U.N. has declared Earth is no more inhabitable for the human race. Now every government has to initiate evacuation procedures for the colonies in Mars. But for The Grand Turkish Republic, the situation is a bit different. Upon hearing the evacuation news, the president of The Grand Turkish Republic demands to eat one last chicken schnitzel before leaving Earth. There is a little catch however, the last alive chicken was last seen some 200 years ago. Now, Kamil - the Chief Presidential Assistant - is faced with the most difficult task of his life: make a chicken schnitzel in a world, where chickens are extinct, or else he and possibly the whole nation may face a sinister end.
