If you were the victim of severe bullying, if the perpetrator asked for help in life and death matters, would you help them? This is the dilemma of the story in Piggy, a French-Spanish thriller film directed and written by Carlota Pereda. The script was also adapted from a short of the same name by Pereda. Playing charming in this film is newcomer Laura Galan who also plays in short.

Sara (Galan) is a fat girl who is often the victim of bullying by her peers. One afternoon, while swimming, he was again bullied by three of his friends, this time too much because Sara almost drowned and they took her clothes. Coming home only wearing underwear, Sara was forced to take a shortcut. How surprised Sara was when a box car that had stopped turned out to contain three of her kidnapped colleagues. Sara let the kidnapper go. One city became a commotion, and Sara was the only witness of the incident.

This is a fresh story with an exciting premise and accompanying moral dilemma. This story is presented as a classy action thriller with a unique protagonist. Sara, who is in a dilemma, is played so perfectly by Laura Galan. The girl’s confused expression and doubts fill throughout the story. We are often annoyed with Sara’s ambiguous pattern. But with all the things that happened to her, not much can be felt by everyone. Our empathy and caring may be only physical unless we have experienced it ourselves. Sara’s choice was finally answered at the end of her story.

Piggy effectively brutally adopts the bullying theme through the character’s psychological perspective. Honestly, this film is not easy for the audience. Until then, acts of bullying cannot be justified. This action will affect them not only physically but mentally and psychologically. Psychologically, their minds must be disturbed, which this film manages to bring up perfectly. Someone with a situation and physical condition like Sara’s will most likely be able to understand much better. Through its brilliant script and casting, this rare story can be told in a straightforward and classy manner while at the same time giving a firm attitude about bullying. Karma is a b**ch!
