Pig and Runt are born at almost the same time in the same Dublin hospital - spiritual twins to different mothers. The pair forge an indestructible and almost telepathic bond, shutting out their friends and families, in fact, the entire outside world. Their lives are so entwined that they simply cannot exist without one another. Their world exists somewhere between violence of A Clockwork Orange and the innocence of a Bjork lyric. But as they make the difficult transition from adolescence into adulthood, external forces attempt to separate them as their own desires threaten to divide them.
