Pig revolves around an aged truffle hunter who lives with a pig, his companion in hunting. Rob has ghosted everyone and has retreated to the woods living a lonely life after his wife's death.
His pig is the only loved one left with him, but some attackers steal him one night while attacking Rob.
The story of Pig turns more emotional, violent, and grim afterwards as Rob struggles to get his companion back. Nic Cage has beautifully portrayed the protagonist while adopting the mannerism and voice of a lonely old man.
