REVIEW: Okja (2017)

After being raised in rural South Korea for 10 years by a young girl named Mija (Seo-Hyun) and her grandfather (Byun Hee-bong), Okja, a genetically-modified ‘superpig’, is taken back to New York for a public event hosted by Okja’s creators, the Mirando Cooperation, spearheaded by CEO Lucy Mirando (Swinton). Mija has other ideas and, with the aid of an underground animal welfare group, a daring rescue mission ensues.
