While traveling through Eastern Europe in search of his long lost father, Samuel takes a massive and unexpected detour. After hitting a pig on a back country road, Samuel pulls the animal into his car and looks for a spot in the woods to bury him. To Samuel’s surprise, he is caught in the act by Kirke, the farm owner’s daughter. One inexplicable thing leads to another, and soon Samuel finds himself enslaved at the owner’s pig farm at the hands of Kirke, who has fallen in love with him. Living in a pig sty with a chain around his neck, Samuel is forced into both hard labor and dinner parties. What begins as a living nightmare oddly may end up being just the thing Samuel was looking for…a purpose. In what plays out like a twisted fairy tale, SAMUEL’S TRAVELS is a dark adventure with bizarre silver linings. —G.S.
