Piggy

'Piggy' is what the so called cool girls call her. And they mean the overweight Spanish teenager Sara, who is consistently bullied, scolded and excluded. Sara loves swimming, especially now that it is summer, but she only does it at the end of the day when everyone else has already left. But one day, those girls haven't left yet and it turns out dramatically; they steal her clothes and even try to drown her in the pool. On her way home, embarrassed and wearing only a bikini, she is passed by a van. Through the rear window, she just sees Claudia, one of the bullies; she is covered in blood and begs Sara for help....

In 2018, Spanish director Carlota Pereda made the short film Cerdita, written by herself, which tells more or less the same story as in Piggy - a highly original revenge film full of bizarre twists and turns. In both films, the lead role is played by Laura Galán.
