"Pig Tales" is the story of a young woman who lands a position at Perfumes Plus, a beauty boutique/"massage" parlor. She enjoys great success until she slowly metamorphoses into . . . a pig. What happens to her then overturns all our ideas about relationships between man, woman, and beast in a stunning feminist fable of political and sexual corruption.
