Edmund the Magnificent

When the news arrives that the county pig fair will be revived, a once legendary breeder, invests his savings in buying a thoroughbred pig, hoping to bring new life to his stud farm. He gives him a name typically used for a king, he feeds and pampers him lovingly. But when the time comes for Edmund to breed, something is wrong. A something that forces the farmer to question his convictions about pigs, love and life.
