It is 1992 and Lithuania has shifted from communism to capitalism. The small collective pig farm managed by Irena is in dire straits. With a bumbling, alcoholic husband, Irena struggles to keep the farm and her workers afloat when a handsome American-Lithuanian, Bernardas, arrives pledging to save the struggling enterprise: he buys the farm, promises a new start and assures Irena that she can stay. At the beninning Bernardas stays true to his word and his investment sees life with the village improving, but just as Irena begins to fall for his charms she realizes that his intentions may not be entirely innocent.
