Chuck Chuck Baby is a musical drama set in and around a chicken factory in industrial North Wales. Helen , a reserved, gentle woman, is slowly collapsing under the weight of her inexplicable life. She lives with her torpid husband and his much younger girlfriend (and their new colicky baby), working nights at the local chicken processing plant. There are two things that keep her hanging on: music, and her dear elderly mother-in-law Gwen, whom she cares for. This dismal state of affairs is interrupted when Joanne, a former neighbour (and Helen’s schoolgirl crush), arrives back in town after her father’s death. What begins as a casual meeting between the two women swiftly turns to friendship and then to love.
