Free Birds centers on two turkeys called Jake (Harrelson) and Reggie (Wilson). Jake is on a top-secret mission and he needs Reggie's help to pull it off. They plan to jump in a time machine and travel to the first Thanksgiving. While there, they'll attempt to keep turkeys from becoming the holiday's meat of choice. If they succeed, they'll save countless lives including their own.
