This multiple-award winning movie is a co-production between Lithuania, Bulgaria and Poland. It is 1992 and Lithuania has shifted from communism to capitalism, leaving the small collective pig farm managed by Irena, in dire straits. She struggles to keep the farm and her workers afloat when a handsome American, Bernardas, arrives, pledging to save the struggling enterprise and turns Irena‘s family life and the village’s routine upside-down. As Irena falls for his charms, she realizes that his intentions may not be entirely innocent.
