Pigs Viv, Coco and Lacey are on their way to the slaughterhouse. Time is running out, the heat is unbearable and they’re desperate to escape. But is it too late? And can they escape the van, the purpose that they’ve been bred for, or reality?
Anarchist Coco, wants leave a legacy that’s more than just skin-deep; determined to avoid the plate she hatches a master escape plan. But pragmatist Viv and wannabe actress Lacey aren’t the escaping kind and can’t have Coco muddying the little time they have left to reminisce of the good ole days.
This surreal comedy examines why we slaughter animals for fashion, food and questions the ethics in doing so.
Warning: you may never eat a pork pie in the same way again!
