Mija and her grandfather live in harmony with Okja, a giant, loving, genetically modified “superpig” who was created as part of a secret experiment. When a corporation comes to reclaim Okja, Mija embarks on a perilous mission to save her loved one from a sinister corporate conspiracy. Replete with an all-star cast and stunning special effects, this heartfelt story from Academy Award winner Bong Joon Ho (Parasite) exposes the atrocities of factory farming, corporations and greed while centering a story of love, kindness and the ethical treatment of animals.
