Beasts and Other Animals


Jeroen starts to work at the pig farm of his uncle where he stumbles into a world that is entirely new to him. 

He develops a connection with the pigs and the dog. But his uncle makes clear to him that over here, other rules apply. Slowly he discovers the darker side of farm life: here, death is always in plain sight. 

Jeroen struggles to find his place on the farm, where his uncle pulls the strings. Because who decides who lives or dies?
