Wat's Pig

In this medieval fantasy two brothers are separated during infancy in a bungled kidnapping. One grows up to be the spoiled, cowardly king of the land, the other - the film's hero - lives in anonymous poverty in the countryside with his pet pig. A war with a neighbouring kingdom looms, and the brothers find themselves unexpectedly reunited.
