Stoyan is a 13-year-old outsider who lives with his grandmother and her ill sister. His parents are immigrant workers and their presence in his life is only on the screen of his phone. A head taller than the others and overweight, he doesn't fit in. He is bullied every day, but never responds. One day, when a boy tries to steal his phone - the only connection with his parents - Pig instinctively fights back and hits the boy, almost deadly. Convinced that he is a killer, Pig runs away and hides in a nearby forest; the boy is not hurt, and the kids want revenge.
