PIGGY is a film about a young teenager named Sarah, who loves the freedom of riding trains at night to watch others move about their lives outside the trains window. Her teacher, Mr. Morgan, tries to bring her out of her shell by offering her the lead role PIGGY, in the school’s production of “Lord of the Flies”. While hesitant at first, Sarah eventually agrees to take on the role, and begins to connect with her fellow cast members. However, as the production draws near, Sarah becomes the target of relentless bullying from a group of students. Despite Mr. Morgan’s efforts to intervene, the bullying continues to escalate, and Sarah becomes increasingly isolated and despairing.

Ultimately, the film is a powerful exploration of the devastating impact of bullying, and the profound consequences it can have on individuals and communities alike. Through its complex characters and nuanced storytelling, it offers a poignant reminder of the importance of empathy, kindness, and understanding in our daily lives.

Matt bellieves that “PIGGY” is the most important of his career. To tell a story that could help change the way children interact with each other and stop so much personal destruction would be amazing. This film is personal, I hope it will help young teenagers grow into better adults and see the effects bullying can have on their peers. If it helps stop that kind of behaviour then I’ll be really proud.
