    A depiction of the last twelve hours in the life of Jesus of Nazareth, on the day of his crucifixion in Jerusalem. The story opens in the Garden of Olives where Jesus has gone to pray after the Last Supper. Betrayed by Judas Iscariot, the controversial Jesus--who has performed 'miracles' and has publicly announced that he is 'the Son of God'--is arrested and taken back within the city walls of Jerusalem. There, the leaders of the Pharisees confront him with accusations of blasphemy; subsequently, his trial results with the leaders condemning him to his death. Jesus is brought before Pontius Pilate, the Roman Governor of Palestine, for his sentencing. Pilate listens to the accusations leveled at Jesus by the Pharisees. Realizing that his own decision will cause him to become embroiled in a political conflict, Pilate defers to King Herod in deciding the matter of how to persecute Jesus

    Tutto ha inizio il giorno in cui Chicken Little, pulcino adolescente che abita nel piccolo paese di Quercia Ghiandosa, scatena il panico nella cittadinanza sostenendo che un pezzo di cielo gli è caduto in testa. L'incidente viene subito archiviato come un banale errore del pulcino che probabilmente ha ricevuto in testa una ghianda. Tuttavia, un anno dopo Chicken Little è ancora lo zimbello del paese, ridicolizzato da tutti e considerato un maldestro combina guai. Il pulcino è alla disperata ricerca di un'occasione che lo possa far risalire nella stima dei suoi concittadini e soprattutto che renda, per una volta, suo padre fiero di lui. Il 'nuovo giorno' in grado di cambiare la sua immagine si presenta durante la finale del campionato studentesco di base-ball, quando Chicken Little riesce, con un'impresa rocambolesca, a segnare il punto della vittoria; osannato dal pubblico e coccolato dal padre, il pulcino sembra finalmente aver superato la sua crisi quando un esagono di cielo gli piom ba nella stanza. Si tratta in realtà del pezzo di un'astronave aliena che ben presto atterra in paese e porta Chicken Little e i suoi amici, Alba Papera, Aldo Cotechino e Pesce Fuor D'acqua, ad un'avventurosa missione. Durante l'atterraggio gli alieni hanno infatti smarrito il figlioletto dei sovrani intergalattici che decidono di invadere la terra per ritrovarlo. Mentre il paese è sconvolto dall'invasione extraterrestre, Chicken Little, che ha fatto amicizia con il piccolo alieno, riesce con l'aiuto di suo padre a portarlo in salvo sull'astronave e salva il pianeta. Osannato da tutta la cittadinanza trova finalmente un momento di riscatto autentico e totale, celebrato anche dal cinema hollywoodiano che gli dedica un film
