Jack Fogel always wanted to work in TV, not run the family business. He thought he’d escaped until his father’s heart attack saddles him with Fogel’s Kosher Chickens, an operation built by his grandfather and mired in the past.
Years later, divorced with two perpetually disappointed teenage daughters and a mother insistent he fund her expensive lifestyle, he finds himself at war with business rival Lionel Gutterman, a former employee now prepared to use unethical tactics to exact revenge.
Lonely and miserable, he meets Sonia Lewis on a blind date. When she reveals she owns a vegan café, Jack panics and doesn’t quite tell the truth about what he does. As their relationship blossoms, the lie becomes more difficult to sustain. With increasingly unpredictable attacks from Lionel, he faces personal and professional destruction unless he works out how the truth can save him.
Chicken Wars is a romantic comedy about the conflicts we must overcome to accept who we are. For Jack, the prize is love or poultry. Can it be both?
