"A meditation on the banality of horrible people, Piggy is an instant horror classic."—Sheri Flanders, Chicago Reader

"Pereda's viciously impressive debut uses standard genre shocks almost as macguffins; it's the all-too-recognizable horror of brutalized adolescence that really makes us wince."—Guy Lodge, Variety

With the summer sun beating down on her rural Spanish town, Sara hides away in her parent's butcher shop. A teenager whose excess weight makes her the target of incessant bullying, she flees a clique of capricious girls who torment her at the town pool, only to stumble upon them being brutally kidnapped by a stranger, who drives off with them in his van. When the police begin asking questions, Sara keeps quiet. Intrigued by the stranger -- an interest that's mutual -- she's torn between revealing the truth and protecting the man who saved her.

In Carlota Pereda’s strikingly bold and ominous feature adaptation of her award-winning 2018 short film, Sara must decide whether to cooperate with the police and parents’ questioning about the kidnappings, or take her own, unbridled path—while also discovering the power of desire and belonging, and the distinction between revenge and redemption.
