Summary

This is the story of a hen named Sprout.

No longer content to lay eggs only to have them carted off to the market, she glimpses her future every morning through the barn doors, where the other animals roam free, and comes up with a plan to escape into the wild and to hatch an egg of her own.

A sad and wonderful story

What a sad, morose story. beautifully told. Evocative and concise. I don't have anywhere near as many superlatives at hand that this very Korean story deserves.
