Things go from bad to worse when he’s captured by Orla, a feisty teenage Celt desperate to prove herself as a warrior. As the Romans prepare for an historic showdown with the Celts at the Battle of Watling Street the two new friends find themselves lined up on opposite sides of the battlefield.

Shaun (Justin Fletcher) and his gang have been enjoying a quiet life, but when an intergalactic being crash lands on Mossy Bottom Farm, that’s all about to change.

Lu-La is missing her faraway home and with a dangerous organisation on the hunt for the unique alien, the flock must figure out a way to help their new friend before Farmageddon strikes.
