But don t try telling that to Frank he's a chicken with a dream. All he thinks about are webbed feet, waterproof feathers, and the cool water of the pond. So when Frank takes a dip and nearly drowns, his mood turns foul. Luckily, he gets a little human help in the form of a man-made wet suit and a pair of flippers and soon he's the speediest bird in the water. And while Frank knows he's ruffled a few feathers, he doesn t care there's just too much for him to crow about.
Until a certain young chick catches his eye, that is. . . .
