A young Korean girl named Mija (Ahn Seo-Hyun) befriends a gigantic pig known as Okja, who's been genetically engineered by a major corporation as a new form of livestock. When the company comes to claim Okja, Mija travels to New York City to save her porcine pal, and soon falls in with a quirky group of animal-rights activists planning a much larger mission of corporate sabotage. This wild sci-fi adventure was co-written and directed by visionary filmmaker Bong Joon-ho (The Host, Memories of Murder, Snowpiercer), and co-stars Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, Lily Collins, Steven Yeun, and Giancarlo Esposito.
