Piggies” are teenage prostitutes from a small town on the Polish western border who sell their bodies cheaply for electronic gadgets, cosmetics or clothes. 16-year-old Tomek, who lives close to the border, learns one day that his schoolmate is offering his services to German pedophiles. In order to meet the whims of his girlfriend, Tomek becomes a star of evening jaunts to Germany.
