Synopsis / Plot
Asbjorn is a patient admitted to a Danish hospital, who quickly warms to a painting of a whimsical pig hung on the walls. It becomes a source of comfort and solace for him - until another patient has it removed by request. Is personal freedom more important than religious rights? An epic debate staged over a tiny painting in a bare hospital room.
