Piggy (Rickard Söderström, DK, 2012)

The year is 1932 and it is a cold December morning. On a farm, we meet a piglet that is sold to a family in Copenhagen. Its new home is a room under the roof tops. Piggy is a pig with bigger appetite than brains and it does not know that the good food he keeps eating will make him the Christmas Eve's main course. Piggy understands this only when the freedom fighter Monty turns up and explains it. Together, they plan their escape but everything goes wrong because of an apple. Monty is caught but Piggy succeeds in escaping onto the roof. In its loneliness Piggy remembers what Monty said about not abandoning your friends, not even when it is a little dangerous.
