The Mudge Boy synopsis

Ignored by his father, Edgar (Richard Jenkins), ostracized by the local children and torn apart by the recent death of his mother, young teen Duncan Mudge (Emile Hirsch) begins behaving strangely. At first, he seeks comfort in the company of his pet chicken, and later he begins dressing in his late mother's clothing. When Mudge finds himself attracted to a local boy named Perry (Tom Guiry), he has no one to help him understand his burgeoning homosexuality.
