A scene from “Okja” (2017), a critically acclaimed movie and a finalist at the Cannes Film Festival.
In a highly futuristic scenario, Okja is a genetically modified pig who became the pet of the caretaker’s daughter, a little girl. The company that created him retrieved him to be used as an exhibit for promotion. Using starvation, beating up, and electric shocks, he was being trained to perform at the exhibit. The little girl tried to rescue him by springing him from his cage. A group of animal rights activists saw what was happening.
