Inspired by a traditional gaelic poem about a hen looking
for a place to make a nest . Set in the small crofting community
of Assynt (in NW Sutherland), the story interweaves the modern
and ancient through music and animation.
Seordag is a metal hen with a TV set body. On her quest to find a place to make her nest, Seordag encounters a helpful seagull, a cow-fiddle, an accordian sheep, a talking cement mixer and Marlene, the hardy crofter. Seordags' new friends help her to make a fabulous hen house where she lays three eggs. They hatch into mobile phone chicks and they have a grand ceilidh. 2003
