In a row house near Washington D.C., two stories of big dreams take place. Floyd and his family have raised a 1000 lbs. pig, determined to turn her into the Redskins’ mascot. A few blocks away, Rico and Scooby, two teenage single fathers and best friends, are scheming up a way to sell their new dog.
Quietly praised in its all-too-brief festival run, this exceptional documentary moves with the loose feel of a home movie, yet proves to be rigorously composed in its careful articulation of community and friendship. Like the best of recent independent cinema, it’s raw, alive and completely sincere.
