Billed as "a Jewish Christmas tale," this award-winning short takes place in Brussels, 1953. Rosa and Alfred, a young Jewish-Polish couple, await the arrival of Rosa's older brother from America. As Rosa prepares to leave for the airport, she asks Alfred to pluck the turkey that is to be delivered in her absence. When the farmer arrives with the delivery, Alfred realizes the turkey is alive! Alfred and his next door neighbor, Fons, who hid Alfred during the war, must try to kill the turkey.
