"Disco Pigs" is the story of two Irish teenagers, Pig (Cillian Murphy) and Runt (Elaine Cassidy), who have been inseparable since birth. Born moments apart, they live next door to one another in Cork, speak their own language, live by their own rules, and generally do their best to ignore everyone else around them. So far, they have managed to keep the outside world from creeping into their sur-reality, in which they imagine searching for a palace where they will be king and queen someday.
But the real world closes in and threatens this when Runt is sent away to a vocational school, and Pig realizes his world is nothing without her. He tries to win Runt back and is lost when it seems Runt may not feel as strongly as he does. ( (6**))
