When 9-year-old Babs receives a pig named Oink as a present from her grandfather, she convinces her parents to keep it under the condition that Oink follows a puppy training. But her parents are not the biggest threat to Oink because actually her grandfather is secretly taking part in the sausage competition organized by The Society for Meat Products from Fresh Pigs…

Nominated to European Animated Feature Film 2022.

OINK is a film about growing up and relationships and trust. The relationship between Babs and Grandpa, but also the one between Babs and Tijn. And Margreet’s relationship with her father, Grandpa Tuitjes. Also the Dutch element in OINK is very important. It should be recognisable as a typical Dutch landscape. It should possess a certain degree of cosiness while at the same time being structured and designed.

The film is also concerned with the unconditional love Babs has for Oink, her pet, and her struggle to save Oink from going into the meat mincing machine on the one hand and her parents who would rather have Oink removed at once on the other.
