All the Pigs presents an endearing dark comedy about Alquist, who is suspended in an adolescent mindset trying to start life over, leading him to challenge his beliefs about what it means to be a man. Spending his time unhinged, consumed with self-loathing, a self-destructive streak and loneliness drives Alquist to many wrong decisions. A raw and moving exploration of identity and masculinity.
