- An ambitious couple and a V.I.P (Very Important Pig) collide in this outrageous comedy of manners! During a time of extreme food rationing in England following World War II, one town's upper class bends the rules by illegally fattening a prize pig for a feast to celebrate the upcoming royal wedding. When a timid foot doctor and his bossy wife get wind of the plan, they seize the chance to climb the social ladder by kidnapping the pig, which has a few unpleasant surprises of its own in store.--Container.
