The vibrant roosters in Lisbon, one of the most cherished symbols of Portugal, have lost all their color, turning grey. The disappearance of the Rooster of Barcelos, who saved an innocent man from hanging, could be a threat to the course of all justice. 

That’s why you’re here. As a not-so-average zoologist, you specialise in what people consider only mythological creatures. You’re ready to hunt down the Rooster and convince it to go back to its duties before its absence causes too much damage.
