A funny and touching story of friendship with a vegetarian background

While 9-year-old Babs is happily extolling the virtues of vegetarianism in her childhood, her grandfather appears out of nowhere from America. The intriguing Tuitjes gives her a pig named Oink, but Babs has trouble convincing her parents to keep it. She enters the pig in a dressage competition, which she prepares with the help of her grandfather. But perhaps the latter does not have the best intentions…Mascha Halberstad’s first animated film, with its own style, is reminiscent of the famous film Babe, A little pig goes a long way (1995) and the unshakeable friendship that a pig had with a human. The topic here is very up-to-date, as the protagonist is also concerned with defending the values of vegetarianism.
