The Story: PIGSVILLE
Mayor Porker has been running the small town of Pigsville, Ontario for years with the help of a crooked sheriff and a shady minister. When a big city corporation decides to ‘invest’ in Pigsville, Mayor Porker sees the chance to make some big bucks, even if things are not quite ethical – or legal. A few of the town’s residents become suspicious and try to clean things up. There’s an ill wind blowing in Pigsville but will they be able to stop it? A hilarious look at small town politics.
