Disco Pigs

Pig and Runt, two people born at the same time on the same day in the same hospital, who have been inseparable ever since. They speak in their own language, play by their own rules, and create a world for themselves in which boundaries blur between truth and illusion. Until, on their 17th birthday, they discover something more. As night falls, and the disco and drink take hold, they spiral violently out of control.
