  • Synopsis

    Two friends set out to celebrate their seventeenth birthdays through the nightclubs of Cork, a city lost in dance and pounding rave rhythms. Pig and Runt are two inseparable violent creatures, who have developed their own language from birth. This night they are about to separate, and which one will survive depends on which one can break free.
