Animal Farm

The animals of Manor Farm are cruelly exploited by humans, and band together, taking over the farm and sending their oppressors packing. However the pigs, who have become the new leaders after the revolution, begin to impliment repressive rules similar to the humans, led by Napoleon, whose famous slogan is "all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others."
