Pigs is the story of Allie, a recently widowed woman who, along with her teenage son, Dip, operates a small hog farm in the Midwest. Left with the debts incurred by her deceased husband, Allie fights the opportunistic encroachments of a land-grabbing sheriff.

Into these bleak circumstances arrives Gray, the brother of Allie's deceased husband. Gray is a homeless man of nebulous and suspect character, and his offers to help on the farm are refused. When Gray begins to sexually pursue Dip, Allie's efforts at thwarting the relationship fail, driving her to desperate ends.

Pigs is a surreal horror story about three individuals caught in the struggle to survive. Set in the early 1960s, this contemporary American folk tale is an expressive exploration of provincial insularity, sexuality and the law.
