Lost in remotest part of Eastern Europe, on the edges of a mythical forest, Sam, is a foreigner, far from home, searching for his biological father Lagzdins. When a minor road accident leads to a chance meeting with a pig-farmer’s daughter – Kirke, Sam’s priorities must change if he wants to survive. Her kind hospitality is a smoke screen to capturing him and making him a slave on the farm. Alone, unable to speak the language and chained up 24/7 with the pigs, he learns to adapt and starts gaining the confidence that might lead to freedom and true love.
