Synopsis

The intertwing of two separate stories: a medieval and a contemporary tale of two young men, both of whom exist as outlaws in their respective societies. The former is banished to a wasteland where he survives by turning happy cannibal, while the latter refuses to be groomed into normalcy, preferring pigs to his fiancee.
