Okja (2017) - full transcript

For 10 idyllic years, young Mija (An Seo Hyun) has been caretaker and constant companion to Okja-a massive animal and an even bigger friend-at her home in the mountains of South Korea. But that changes when a family-owned multinational conglomerate Mirando Corporation takes Okja for themselves and transports her to New York, where image obsessed and self-promoting CEO Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton) has big plans for Mija's dearest friend. With no particular plan but single-minded in intent, Mija sets out on a rescue mission, but her already daunting journey quickly becomes more complicated when she crosses paths with disparate groups of capitalists, demonstrators and consumers, each battling to control the fate of Okja...while all Mija wants to do is bring her friend home. Deftly blending genres, humor, poignancy and drama, Bong Joon Ho (Snowpiercer, The Host) begins with the gentlest of premises-the bond between man and animal-and ultimately creates a distinct and layered vision of the world that addresses the animal inside us all. Okja is a Plan B Entertainment, Lewis Pictures and Kate Street Picture Company production in association with Netflix.

Thank you! What a terrific crowd!

Welcome to my inauguration!

I'm Lucy. Lucy Mirando,
of the Mirando Corporation.

Welcome to my grandfather's old factory.

Now, I know, we all know,
that Grandpa Mirando was a terrible man.

We know of the atrocities
he committed in this space.

We know these walls are stained
with the blood of fine working men.

But today, I reclaim this space...

to tell you a beautiful story.

Now the rotten CEOs are gone.

It's Mirando's new era with me,

and with new core values,
environment and life.


You're much more fun
than the last chief executive.

Well, former CEO Nancy's my sister, but...
we're very different people.

We have very different ways of being.
We have very different business ethics.

But she's totally ignorant about humanity.

She lacks vision
beyond her next round of golf.

The world's population is
at seven billion.

805 million human beings struggle
with hunger every day,

including 30 million right here
in the United States.

The world is running out of food,
and we're not talking about it.

We needed a miracle.

And then we got one.

Say hello to a super piglet.

This beautiful and special little creature

was miraculously discovered
on one Chilean farm.

We brought this precious girl
to the Mirando Ranch in Arizona.

Our scientists have been raising her
with love and care ever since,

observing and performing various studies.

And we've successfully reproduced
26 miracle piglets

by nonforced, natural mating.

They are like nothing on Earth.

Last week, we sent the 26 super piglets

to the 26 countries
where the Mirando offices are located.

Each one was given
to an esteemed local farmer.

I have asked each farmer
to raise their special guest,

honoring traditional techniques
unique to their respective cultures.

My top scientists
in the Mirando branch offices

will be on hand to offer
whatever support is required.

These little piggies will be the ancestors
of a whole new species.

Mama Nature's gift.

A revolution in the livestock industry.

And now we have a competition!

One local farmer will raise the biggest,
most beautiful and special one.

The ultimate super pig!
But who will it be?

I'm not an expert,
but I know someone who is.

TV's most beloved zoologist
and veterinarian,

and the new face
of the Mirando Corporation,

Dr. Johnny Wilcox!

Who said
a brilliant scientist can't be fun?

See, everybody wants to eat him up.

When the competition reaches its climax,

Dr. Johnny will crown the winner
at a Magical Animals live telecast

right here in New York City.

And that is when we will unveil
our super pigs to the world!

How long will the wait be?

When do we get to see the big pig
with our own eyes?

Ten years.

Ten years?

Jesus Christ, I'll be dead by then.

Our super pigs will not only be
big and beautiful,

they will also leave a minimal footprint
on the environment,

consume less feed
and produce less excretions.

And most importantly...

they need to taste fucking good.

It won't hurt. Don't move.

It's okay.

Not too hard!

They're not even ripe yet.

You had some already!


Okja, what are you doing?

Look at all the fish here!

I want fish stew today!

What? Now?



Is she not here yet?


Where has she gone off to?

Mija Joo of 37-1, Sanyang Town!

Promptly return home for dinner. Mija!

Come home quick. Grandpa is starving!

Don't be scared. It's a shortcut.

No! Go back up!

Where are you?


Mundo from the office is coming to visit.


To collect the money for Okja?

I've already sent them the money.

So Okja is ours now, right?

Of course.

So why is he coming? Paperwork?

They said soccer would be on.

Son of a...

Great. Now we can buy a new TV.

This one's still fine.

Such a tightwad...

Welcome. Hard climb?

Good afternoon.

Here, have some water.

I thought a bunch of you were coming.

They're behind me.

Always on top of her dental hygiene!

Wait, wait. Let me out, Okja.


Hello, Mundo.

- Did you brush your own teeth?
- Yeah.

Retina Display!

Bring me the black box.

Does Okja eat and poop well?

Yes, and she has a super-high metabolism.

Right. That's what the readings say.

Fuck me!

I'm here!

All right!

I'm fucking here, God damn it!

He... he's that guy! From TV, right?

He is.

What was it? Animal Magic!

He's the "very healthy" guy!

All the other super pigs were
on flat land, accessible by car.

Japan's one was five minutes
from the airport.

And you... I notice that you had to leave
the fucking mountaintop super pig

till the end, because you knew
that the climb would rile me.

Well, guess what? I'm riled.

He looks exactly like he does on TV.

Oh, that's great.

Can somebody...

Can somebody at least
bring me some water?

Seeing as I'm about to be filmed
for fucking television!

And not sparkling water. I don't want
to belch my way through the broadcast.

Get him some water.

I don't think they have
sparkling water here.

Excuse me, sir.

If you don't mind,
Dr. Johnny's a bit thirsty.

Thank you.

Here's your water.

Wait. That's soju...

Hey, that's mine...

Hey, Okja.

It's okay. Come on out.

That's it... Very good.

Well, fucking film me, Jennifer!

You can't fake these emotions.

Film him.

Get him his uniform. Quick.

They're filming!

Pick up his bag. Come on.

That's it. Is your... Mundo?

Mundo, get out of the shot, please.
Thank you very much. That's it.

And his hat. Get his hat.
Looking good, Dr. Johnny.

That's it. Everything's gonna be okay.

Mundo, get out of the shot.
Thank you very much.

And... roll.

Ten years ago, 26 local farmers
from 26 far-flung countries

were each given a super piglet.
This year, I travelled...

- What's he saying?
- Dunno.

One of those 26 farms to decide who
will be invited to the Best Super Pig Fest

in New York City,
where it will be unveiled to the world.

You've done an incredible job.

Thank you.

Pan to the old man!

- Pan to Johnny.
- Johnny, Johnny!

Ever since she was little,
I've always been fascinated with Okja

and her monthly health reports and data.

I've only known her through numbers
and graphs and pictures,

but seeing her here today,

and studying her
with my own eyes and hands,

she amazes me even more.

This is it. The moment of mutual trust

between Mirando's very own Dr. Johnny
and the esteemed local farmer.

She's truly exceptional.

How did you do it?
What were your methods?

He just let her run around.

"He just let her run around."
How beguiling!

Show the sash to the camera,
Jennifer, and go...

- Ready for the festival in New York City?
- New York?

Very healthy.

One more sash, please.

A special sash for a special little lady,

who I'm sure helped raise this super pig
in her own special little way.

And cut.
Get some cutaways of the pig!

Here. Autograph, please.

I guess I'm still hip in Korea.

The kids at home don't really
appreciate me anymore.

But here...

I'm sorry if I was a little grumpy
when I first came to the farm.

But, you know, being
a television presenter can be stressful.

I always have to be "on,"

now that I'm the face
of the Mirando Corporation.

Who ever thought that would happen?

Mija. Let's go visit your mom and dad.

Now? I want to watch this.

They'll be doing this all day.

Your mom and dad appeared
in my dream last night

and said they missed you.

Come on.

Thank you.

Come quick.

It won't take long.

Who do you miss more?

Mom or dad?

I can't remember...

their faces.

It's been so many years.

Just the two of us in the mountains.

Not two. Three.

Oh, sure. Three.

The three of us.

Okja, too.

Our little fatty!

What's that?

This is...

a gold pig.

100% real gold.

In the old days,

the elders would give a gold pig
to their daughters as a wedding gift.

Mija, it's yours now.

Take it.

Why all of a sudden?

Well, you're not getting married now...

but... Okja is going far away...

so you can keep this gold pig instead.


The pig competition's nearly over.

So they're taking all the pigs back
to the company.

But Okja's ours.

We bought her from them.

You sent them the money!


they wouldn't let me buy Okja.

So I bought you this gold pig instead.

What are you talking about?

Hey, did you hear that?

Your daughter raises her voice at me now.


They say Okja was selected
as the best pig.

They have plans for her in America.


She'll spend the night
at the Mirando building in Seoul.

And tomorrow,
she'll be on a plane to America.

She's a celebrity now!


To be honest...

you're nearly a grown woman now.

I don't like you playing
with that pig all day.

You should go to town, meet a boy and...

You must be hungry.

I made your favorite, chicken stew.

Go wash up so we can eat.

I put in this and that.

Everything that's good for you.

Where are you going?



I'm going to bring Okja home.

Are you crazy?

Seoul? In the middle of the night?

You have no money to go to Seoul.

Stop! It's dangerous. Don't move!

Oh, my God...

Oh, God...

Go away, you'll get hurt!

Where do you think you're going?

You're not going anywhere!

Stop right there!

Blade shoulder! Loin! Spare rib! Hock!

Got it?

This is what will happen to her.

This is Okja's fate!



Mija! Mija!




Excuse me!

I'm here for Okja!

Use the phone.

Hey, could you come to the lobby?

No, some kid is here.
She wants me to open the door.

Please state the name you are looking for.


Sorry, please speak clearly.

You can't just send anybody up here.

Screen these people, okay?


Excuse me!

Excuse me!

What the...

You little bitch! Hey!



You little shit!

- Stay where you are!
- Hey! Stop!

Just open the door!

Open the door so we can talk.


Open the damn door.

Come on, you guys. Stop taking photos,
okay? This is classified.

These are direct orders
from HQ in America.

No photos!

I don't want to see anything
on Instagram or Facebook. Okay?

Okja, I'm here! Okja!

Let's talk! Where are you going?

Wait! No, stop!

Look how tall the truck is! Right?

Are you new here?

Call the police!

Wait! Stop! Damn it!

What does that say? 4.2...

This isn't taller than 4.2 meters, is it?
Is it?

Do you have a license to drive this thing?

A commercial license?

Wait! Hey! Come on, now! Hey, no!

What now? What's that noise?

What's that?

What the hell?

Nice to meet you.

We're not terrorists!


We don't like violence!

We don't want to hurt you!

Stop... stop the truck!

What the hell is he saying?


Just cooperate, guy.


- Hi.
- Hey!

- What's going on?
- Hey, over here!

Hey, old man! Safety!

I don't think he gets it!

Buckle! Buckle!

Put on your seat belt!

'Cause we're gonna come
on board now, right?

But we're not gonna hurt you.
You'll be okay. Yes? Okay.

No compromise!

Hey! Hands up!

- We come in peace! Drop that!
- Stay back!

Hello? Police?

Terrorists! There are terrorists here!

What's he writing?

Is this fucking amusing to you?

It's not mine. It's company property.

Everybody follow me!

Hold her! Hold her!

No, no, no. No!

- Hey! Hey!
- Stop!

Catch her!

Everybody in the van!

They're leaving! Start the truck! Quick!

- Fuck it.
- What?

What do I care?
I'm leaving this shithole anyway.

You know what?

I do have a commercial license,
but I don't have workman's comp.

Insurance? You want insurance?

Then show some loyalty to the company!

This is what company loyalty looks like!

This way!


I'm sorry!

Watch out!



"Animal Liberation Front."

Animal Liberation Front?

We are good people. On your side.


I'm so sorry we hurt you.
It wasn't our intention, okay?

- This way!
- Guys, be careful!

Where are you?

Me! Me, too!

There! Right there!

Back door! Go to the back door!


Back door! Back door!


Mija! Don't!

Don't do that!

Stop rubbing!

He's having a shitty day.

It's beautiful.

And eco-friendly, you know?

Hey, baby, it's me.

What kind of body wash do we have?

Fruity Lucy Lemon?

Because the girl showed up, so I'm
providing the team with unfolding intel.

- I don't care. It still sounds creepy.
- I'm not creepy.

That's not... That's my voice.
That's my actual voice.

My name is Jay.

He's Jay.

My name is K.

I'm Red.

- Silver.
- I'm Blond.

I'm Mija. This is Okja.

We are animal lovers.

We rescue animals
from slaughterhouses, zoos, labs.

We tear down cages and set them free.

This is why we rescued Okja.

Thank you very much.

For 40 years, our group has liberated
animals from places of abuse.

- Is that it?
- Yeah.

Go on.

- It's very important she gets every word.
- It's all right. That's it.

We inflict economic damage
on those who profit from their misery.

We reveal their atrocities to the public.

And we never harm anyone,
human or nonhuman.

That is our 40-year credo.


fight people who harm animals...

- What was the second thing you said?
- We reveal their atrocities...

- Are you okay, Silver?
- I'm fine.

- You okay?
- I'm good. I'm good.

He still hasn't eaten anything?

No, he's...

still trying to leave the smallest
footprint on the planet that he can.

All food production is exploitative.

Try this.

Come on. It's just a tomato.

Ripened in ethylene gas.
Transported in trucks.

I admire your conviction, Silver,
but your pallid complexion concerns me.

How long have you and Okja lived together?

Since she was four.

Do you know where she was being taken?

To America.
To the Best Super Pig Competition.

Yes. But she was being taken
somewhere else first.

This is where they're really taking Okja.

This underground laboratory
in Paramus, New Jersey.

This is the building
where Okja was created.

She thinks she was born in Arizona
and her mom in Chile.

Mija. Everything you believe you know
about Okja is a lie.

Okja was created in this lab.
So was her so-called mother.

This is the building
where Mirando experiments

on their genetically mutated animals.

Because genetic mutation is too dangerous,

Mirando's been disguising it
as natural, safe and non-GMO.

But that's a complete scam.

Millions of GM pigs are already lining up
in front of slaughterhouses.

You and the other local farmers
are just promotional devices for them.

Just a picturesque backdrop.


Mirando know their consumers
would be disgusted

by the idea of eating mutant, GM foods.

So ten years ago, their boss,
Lucy Mirando,

went inside the lab and dug around
amongst all the disfigured creatures

to find the 26 prettiest ones,

like your Okja.

And then, big fanfare,
she sent them around the world.

They've been frantically
breeding their super pigs,

and soon the supermarkets will be filled
with their flesh and organs.

Dog food, hot dogs, bacon and jerky...

Our plan is to put a stop
to their project.

But to do so,
we need video from inside the lab,

footage of the horrible atrocities
being committed against the animals.

And there's a problem.
The security is impenetrable.

But there is a way.

Although we will only go ahead with it
if you give us your consent.

Jay. If this kid doesn't give her consent,
what, we just abandon the mission?

Is that what you're saying?

'Cause, brother, we've come halfway
around the world for this.

- We should get this done now.
- Don't be so selfish.

This isn't about you or us,
and she is Okja's family.

So of course we need her consent.

I will not harm her by forcing a mission
upon her that she does not consent to.

As members of the A.L.F.,
we are obliged to honor its credo.

We are going to abort because some guy
from the 1970s wrote a fucking credo?

Is that what you're saying?

Tradition does not make a movement strong.

We make a movement strong.

If that's how you feel, call yourself
something else and not the A.L.F.,

and get out of this truck.

In order to expose Mirando,
we need video from inside the lab.

And this is where Okja comes in.

The Mirando scientists are dying to run
tests on her in their underground lab.

Their star super pig.
Which is why we've made this.

It looks exactly like the black box
on her ear, right?

Only this one can wirelessly send
a video feed to us from inside the lab.

Okja will become a hidden camera.

Hey, buddy.



I'm sorry, but this was our plan.

Rescue Okja, replace the black box
and let Mirando retake Okja.

You want to send Okja to America?

To this laboratory?

Yes. But don't worry.

They wouldn't dare hurt her.

She needs to be perfect
for their beauty pageant.

Whatever tests they do on her in there
will need to be harmless.

We have a detailed plan on how to rescue
her from the event in New York City.

We promise to bring her back to you.

If our mission succeeds,

we'll be able to shut down Mirando's
super pig project completely.

And we'll be saving millions
of super pigs like Okja from death.

But we won't do it without your approval.

If you don't approve,
we won't do the mission.

What is your decision?

Take Okja back to the mountains.

She agrees to the mission.

Thank you.

- Thank you so much.
- This is a giant leap for animal kind.

Thank you.

It's Ziploc.

- Water won't be so bad.
- It'll be great!

Move! Move! I'm gonna do it!
Holy shit, I'm gonna do it!

Go, go, go, go, go, go.


Okja, I'll see you in New York.

Till we meet again.

Mija! Try learning English.
It opens new doors!

Hey, wait! Mister!

Hey, you!

Grab him!

He jumped! How did he do that?

Hey, kid. It's dangerous.

Get out of there.

Hey, kid. Hey, come out!

- Are you kidding me?
- It's supposed to hold.

You're a fucking joke-show, mate.

- Fucking awesome, epic plan, man.
- It's a Ziploc.

- Fucking Ziploc, my ass.
- It was supposed to hold.


- You okay?
- Yeah.

Last night in South Korea,

Mirando employees were securing
their super pig when a young girl

suddenly stepped in
and tried to stop them.

These extraordinary events began
earlier in the day

with a highly-organized pignapping attempt
made by the Animal Liberation Front.

I wouldn't worry too much, Luce.
The A.L.F. technically failed.

They weren't even able
to take the product.

Yeah, it's a kerfuffle over nothing.
We shouldn't make a big deal out of it.

It actually means our security here
in the US is so airtight,

they wouldn't even
think about breaking in.

Which is why they went
all the way to Korea.

The A.L.F. hasn't been in the headlines
for a number of years,

but they're back in the spotlight
after today's chaotic events.

Well, the good news is that the pig
is on its way to New York now.

Right. And the Best Super Pig Fest
will continue as planned.

Significant damage to Mirando's
stock price seems inevitable.

Yeah. Mirando is completely fucked.

That's your current employer, correct?

Yup. But I don't care.

They fucked, not me.
They fucked up.

I know what they're calling me,
those A.L.F. fuckers.

They're calling me a psychopath.

You're not a psychopath.

They're the psychopaths.
Right, Ms. Mirando?

They're narcissists.

Do narcissists wear balaclavas?

Crazy radicals have been calling us
psychopaths since the '60s.

"You're a psychopath.

Your sister was a psychopath.
Your father was a psychopath."

Well, Daddy was a psychopath, Frank.
I mean, that's hardly an unfair slur.

"What did you do in the war, Daddy?"

"I manufactured the napalm
that made everybody's skin fall off."

And this is a man
who called his child an idiot loser.

Well, in fairness to your father,
when he called you an idiot loser,

you had just signed up
for a two-year course in California

called "Unleash Your Calling."

At a highly-respected institute
for the advancement of human potential

where many a forward-looking CEO go.

And you know what I was doing
while I was at the institute?

I was visualizing new
and better ways of doing business.

While my sister was CEO...
What was the name of that lake?

Moose Lake.

Moose Lake.
While my sister was CEO,

dumping so much toxic waste
into Moose Lake that it exploded...

The only lake ever to explode.
Well done, Nancy.

I was visualizing ways of turning the most
hated agrochemical company in the world

into the most likeable
miracle pig-rearing company.

And it's working! It's working!

It was working until last night.

Until six hours ago.

The synthesis of old Mirando
and new Mirando was impeccable.

I took nature and science,

and I synthesized.

And everyone loved it.

You remember what the New York Times
said about our super pigs?

"Intriguing," right?

Slate! "Lucy Mirando is pulling off
the impossible.

She is making us fall in love
with a creature

that we are already
looking forward to eating."

I mean, these are journalists
who never write about pigs.

They never write about pigs!
They wrote about our pigs.

Ten years in planning!

On the cusp of a product launch
that will feed millions!

And what happens?

We get tangled up in this terrorism thing,

and somehow we end up being
the ones who look bad.

We don't look too bad.

- We don't? Open that thing!
- Yup.

No, rewind. Rewind.


Okay, play.

The girl was later revealed
to be the granddaughter

of a local farmer selected
by Mirando CEO...

Pause, there.

That's it.

That's the image.

That is the image
that is gonna destroy us.

Who are those morons?

Find out and fire them.


Abusing that adorable girl.

And in the uniforms
that I personally designed myself.

And shoving her best friend onto a truck.

That's gonna kill us.

Right there. That's it.

That image. We're dead.

Lucy, may I ask you a question?

The girl. You're thinking of bringing her
to New York, aren't you?

I was about to say that!

Yes, of course.

You'll invite her
to the Best Super Pig Festival and...

A moving reunion!

The best super pig and the adorable
farmer girl forced apart

and somehow brought together on our stage.

Brilliant, Lucy.

An emotional reunion,
and then they leave the stage together.

Hand in hand. Hand in trotter.

She can be the new face
of the Mirando Corporation.

She can be the embodiment
of the Mirando ideal.

She's young, she's pretty, she's female.

She's eco-friendly and she's global!
She's a godsend!

Are you writing this down?

She's not the face
of the Mirando Corporation. I am.

You don't even know
if she can do anything but cry.

Whereas I am loved...

all over the world.

Could you sit down and shut
the fucking squeaking and whining?

You know...

You are forcing me...

I'm forcing you to do what?

To examine my options.

Oh, really? Okay.

Go ahead. Examine them.

Are you examining them now?
Have you finished examining them?

Sit. You're a deadbeat.

Your ratings are shit. Epic fail.

Jennifer, get her a first class ticket.

Get her a passport. She probably
hasn't got a passport. Get her a visa.

We'll pay for all the damage
the super pig did in Korea.

Get an attorney on that.

Don't force an image on her,
like Benetton did with those Asian models.

No. I have a much better idea.

Okay, we got it all figured out.
We got a strategy. We got a plan.

We're gonna think of it like a love story.

Yeah, that's what we're gonna do.
Hand those bits of paper quickly, come on.

We got a little girl
running around the city all alone.

We've got a big, big giant pig.

We gotta bring them back together
because they miss each other.

Tell 'em to go to New York City.

Look at her, so sweet. Cute.
Totally gorgeous.

Totally sexy. Hot, tiny, perfect.

At this rate,
she'll be doing Mirando commercials.

- It's very likely!
- Thank you!

- Mija!
- Mija.

Everything is worked out!
Don't worry about a thing.

Let's take a photo
for our company Twitter.

Hold this.

Get Okja on the phone now!

I want to know how she's doing.

On the phone? With a pig?

And we gotta tell this to everybody
in New York City!

On Instagram, on YouTube, on Tumblr,
on Facebook, on Twitter.

Okja. Okja, the giant pig.
She's, like, this big.

She's, like, oh, my God. She's bigger.

Yeah, she's got one big, giant nipple.

Hasn't Okja landed yet?

Can we phone her now?

Let's take a picture first, then call her.

- Really?
- Of course.

In the plane...
If you get airsick...

chew the end of this.

Like this, okay?

Look at me.

Mija. Take this.



Just what I need!

Hey, Nance.

How's London? Is that rain?
That can't be good for the golf.

Just letting you know I'm thinking of you.

You're having a moment, I see.

Yes, things are going super well.
It's all a massive success.


They keep showing very
unflattering pictures of you in the press.

Those ones of you as a fat child
on Daddy's knee.

Such nasty remarks.

All eyes are on you, aren't they,
squeaky clean icon?

I've sent you a reminder of the true face

of the most powerful CEO
Mirando has ever had.

You go, girl.

Okay. Signal's good.

We're seeing what Okja's seeing.

Enjoy this moment.

Because soon the whole world
will know what we know.

Oh, my God, Jay.
We're about to change everything.

With my shiny antennae.

I'll put some distance
between us and them.

We have to test
how far the signal reaches.

Oh, man. We're really cooking now.

There she goes.

- Okja gets to see everything.
- Quiet.

This is historical. It's historical.
This is history.



We're reunited.

In this wretched laboratory, no less.

Someone you're going to find very special.

Here is Alfonso!

Where is he?

I got a special treat
for Lucy's star super pig.

Chop, chop!

Let me introduce you to someone.

Alfonso, Okja!

Okja, Alfonso! Your boyfriend.

It's all good.

- Come.
- Are we recording?


Oh, my God.

We should never have sent her there.

Can you turn it off, please?


No, we need to record this.
We need to show this.

At least turn the volume down.

- We knowingly sent her to that hellhole.
- No, we didn't.

We didn't know
they were gonna do this to her.

We didn't know they were gonna
put her through this mating.

We suspected!

Come on, we all suspected.

Turn it off!

I know it's painful.

But we can't be weak.

That's right.

This is why we need to stay focused.

This is why we need
to stick to the mission.

The little girl trusted us with Okja.
We have to respect her bravery.

She never agreed to send Okja.

What'd you just say?

She was in our truck.

She said...

I wanna take Okja back to the mountains.

I lied.

- God.
- Why did you lie?

I don't know.
In that moment, it's just... I couldn't...

I couldn't stop the mission.

You know, this is...
this is the coolest mission ever.

- I have all this stuff and...
- Hey, K... K.

It's okay.

I hold you dear to my heart,

but you have dishonored
the 40-year history

and meaningful legacy
of the Animal Liberation Front.

You have betrayed the great minds
and brave fighters that have preceded you.

Never mistranslate.

Translation is sacred.

From this moment on,

you are no longer a member of the A.L.F.
You are permanently banned.

Get out.


since it is vital that we continue
with our mission,

we will return your equipment
to you after its completion.

Consider this your final contribution
to the A.L.F.


Oh, my God.

You want some?

It'll make you feel better.

This is an unspeakable place.

I know. I know.

There are worse rooms out there.

Lucy Mirando says
I'm not supposed to harm you in here.

Well, at least not visibly.

She wants you perfect
for her big telecast!


when a woman humiliates a man

in front of his own colleagues,

a man is inclined
to make his own decisions.

This is nothing, really.

It's used on beef.
I mean, live cows.

To check their marbling.

Hi, Dr. Johnny. Is Okja with you?


Our precious farmer princess insists
that she speaks to her on the phone.


Whatever. She says you should lift
her ear and put the receiver underneath.

- You're on speakerphone!
- Okja!


Okja! Are you okay?

Okja! Okja! What did you say?

I can't hear you!

Okja! Are you okay?

Bang! Sirloin.

The shank.

Don't worry. You won't die.

We're just gonna take some of your meat.

And of course, I'm not gonna eat any.

We have tasters for that.

They're a bunch of half-wit,
degenerate fucktards!

I'm gonna... I'm gonna poke you
in five places.

And I'm sorry. It's gonna hurt.

I shouldn't be here.

I'm an animal lover.

Everybody knows that about me!


Fuck, yeah.

That was the best I've ever had.
The best of the best.

Today Mirando presents to you
our super gourmet sausage.

Juicy like you've never tasted before.

An exquisite taste
with a very affordable price!

Made fresh from our naturally-grown,
grade A super pigs.

Very healthy! Come and try!

Pink streamers, pink fireworks.

Lucy's gonna be so happy.
I'm gonna get my bonus...

What the hell is this?

That's Lucy's autograph.
"Designed by Lucy Mirando."

She can't get enough of herself, can she?

Hey! How's everyone doing?

Still with this thing.
It looks super tacky.

Don't touch it!

Don't touch it.

Okay, okay. The fanny pack is fine.

I think she understands some English.
So we should be careful what we say.

Yes, yes, everything is fine.

But you have to wear this.

It's a special edition,
custom-made, just for you.

Look. The CEO even autographed it.

Totally rad, right?

Now, let's put it on.

Not until I see Okja.


Think about how dramatic it will be.

Okja... Okja doesn't even know
you're here.

If you show up on stage
without telling her,

it'll be such a great surprise.

You know? Surprise?

I don't care about that. I want
to see Okja first. Or I won't cooperate.

- Mija...
- She said no.

Mija. Mija, I don't think
you understand this situation.

No, no, no.
We are the ones who have Okja. Okay?

We are doing you a favor.
Do you get it now?

Yep, yep, yep.
You want to go back home with Okja, right?

Then do as you're told.

this is what will happen to Okja.

Put it on.

The turnout's looking good,
don't you think?

- Lucy must be thrilled.
- Yeah. Tell me about it.

- All the eyes on her.
- She thinks it's her own fashion show.


It's me.


Shut up!

Man, this is so good, man.
You gotta try this.

It's actually really good.

Good day, all. Thank you very much.

These are for you.

Thanks, Frank.

Ten years.
An extraordinary accomplishment.

Ten years, finally coming to fruition.

You have to try one of these.
They're completely delicious.



Such a shame we had to tell
all those little white lies.

It's not our fault that the consumers
are so paranoid about GM foods.

These are really beautiful.

Your taste is as impeccable as always.

Well, the flowers aren't actually from me.

- Are they from Nancy?
- Yes.

And Nancy's here. Not in London.

She's here? In New York?

Fuck Nancy.

- She's been here a while.
- I told you to keep her away!

She frightens people!

You frighten people, too, Lucy.

Yeah, but she really frightens people.
She reminds them of Daddy.

This is mine. This is my project.

She just wants to support you
on your special day.

Is she watching me?

Johnny's in the house!





Dr. Johnny's...

Magical Animals!

Everybody knows
Dr. Johnny can't stand anything boring!


- Have I ever given you a boring show?
- No!

Who's ready?

Ten years ago,
twenty-six farmers from lands far away

were each given a magical super piglet.

This year, I met these wonderful people,

to decide which super piglet
would have the honor of being invited

to this prestigious occasion.

Are you ready to meet
the winner of this contest?


The best super pig
on the face of the earth?


Are you ready?

Well, I'm afraid you're gonna
have to meet somebody else first.

Isn't that the way it always is?

Before you meet the talent,
you gotta meet the suits.

I'm just kidding. I'm just kidding.

She is an amazing little lady...

and she happens to be the brain
behind this entire super pig project!

Ladies and gentlemen,
put your hands together

for the one, the only,

Lucy Mirando!

"Lucy Mirando!"

Fucking idiot.

You look amazing!

Oh, Johnny.

You're skating on thin ice.
Watch out you don't fall in and drown.

Don't worry.
I'm not here to put you to sleep

with some corporate speech
like my boring sister might have.

There it is!

Hello, Lucy!

Lucy, we love you!

No. I'm here to introduce you
to a real superstar.

Maybe you've already seen her on YouTube,
enjoying her little shopping spree

on that... in that underground mall
in Seoul!

So let's all welcome
an extraordinary little girl.

A local farmer
who raised her beloved super pig

in wild and beautiful nature.

The fearless pig rider
from across the globe!

Please welcome...


And here she is! Our ultimate super pig!


Okja! Okja!

Hey, get her off the stage!


Come on. Now!

Good. Here's Johnny!


Don't look back.

Just look at me.

Turn it off! Turn it... Kill the screen!

I'm an animal lover.

Stop it!


No! No, no, no! No! No!

I promise... No, I pledge, to learn

everything I can,
everything from this situation...

For more details and shocking proof

of Mirando's crimes
against humanity and animals,

go to YouTube and search
"Mirando is fucked."

That's right, folks. Go to YouTube now

and search "Mirando is F-U-C-K-E-D."


I don't think we have a choice, Nancy.

You have to go out there.

You don't say.

What a clusterfuck.

Let's get private security in there.

Black Chalk.

We're on good terms
with the NYPD, correct?


We have an arrangement.

Okja! No!

Black Chalk!

- Let's go. Come on!
- You okay?

- Blond! Let's move!
- Go, go, go!

Come here, come here.

Red, let's go.


- Where's the truck?
- Just up here to the right!

More Black Chalk! Hurry!

Take 'em down!

Move! Move!


Well. Good luck
with clearing up my mess, twinny.

Well, for a while back then,
you forgot you were such a loser.

I mean, Daddy was a terrible man.

He was a real horror.

But, by God, did he know about business.

Don't worry
about your apology speech, twinny.

I'll pretend to be you
in front of the press.

The police.

You'll understand that I will be
instructing our corporate attorneys

not to assist you in any way.


- Zero delay on the distribution plan.
- Of course.

Scrap Lucy's
precious promotional marketing crap.

- Tell everyone ASAP.
- Definitely.

We already have FDA approval, correct?

Yes, we do. But I'm not sure
how the customers will react after today.

If it's cheap, they'll eat it.

I guarantee early sales will be strong.

Shut down the lab as already discussed.

We'll visit the production facility
later tonight.

Get all the execs there,
even the ones on vacation.

Put all the pigs into production.

- Even the best super pig?
- Every last one of them.

- You okay?
- K...

What are you doing?


We need to hurry.

Look, I'm just saying that
if I call you one time,

I like for you to pick up the first time,
you know what I mean?

Like, I have a friend here
who's incredibly sick.

Are you even certified?
Do you know what you're doing?

The guy's bleeding out!
Do you know what you're doing?

Mija, are you okay?

She wants to know where we're going.

We're going to Okja.


Yes, but you should know
the situation is not good.

What is it?

I didn't... There is no other way.

I wish you didn't have to see this.

Just tell me where she is!

We are going to need your help. Mija...


Wait! Mija!



- Okja! Okja!
- Okja!

- Okja!
- Okja!


- Okja!
- Okja!


- Okja!
- Okja!

Emergency, emergency.
We have intruders in section A-24!

Come on.

I'm so sorry.

This is nonlethal.
This is a nonlethal choke hold, okay?

All right, you're gonna be fine.
You're gonna be fine.


Six minutes, forty-five seconds
before Black Chalk arrive!

This is our last chance.

- Okja!
- Okja!



No! Don't go inside!





- Okja...
- Wait.

- This what caused the alarm?
- I believe so.

I'm flummoxed that security is so lax
as to allow a bunch of hooligans

to delay the production line,
even for a second.

It won't happen again. Please note
that Black Chalk was here exactly on time.

- No, guys, guys, this is...
- Please, don't touch her!

- Sir! Sir, put the gun down. It's okay.
- Stop! Less violence!

- No! No violence!
- It's okay.

Isn't this Lucy's beloved
fearless pig rider?

She is. And that's our best super pig.

Well, what's the hiccup?

Why is it still alive?

Why you want to kill Okja?

Well, we can only sell the dead ones.

I wanna go home with Okja.

No, it's my property.

- You're a fucking psychopath.
- You should be ashamed of yourself.

Fuck off! We're extremely proud
of our achievements.

We're very hardworking businesspeople.

We do deals,
and these are the deals we do.

This is the tenderloin
for the sophisticated restaurants.

The Mexicans love the feet.
I know. Go figure!

We all love the face and the anus,
as American as apple pie! Hot dogs.

It's all edible.
All edible, except the squeal.

- So you're the other Mirando.
- And you are?

- Let Mija and Okja go.
- Why?

You already have a shitload of money.

- Please.
- This is business.

Hey, Nancy! I hold all creatures
dear to my heart,

but you are crying out to be an exception.



No, wait!

I want to buy Okja... alive.

Very nice.

We have a deal.

This thing is worth a lot of money.

Make sure our customer
and her purchase get home safely.

Our first ever Mirando super pig sale.
Pleasure doing business with you.

Did you pick a lot?


Don't scare the chickens.

It's gonna be big. Record-breaking.

Lot of folks flying in
from Midwest and Canada.


Let me introduce you to a new member.


- Hi. What's your name?
- Red.

Red. It's because of your hair?

Hey. Quit bugging her.

He's a chatty one.

I'm assuming
Mirando bigwigs will be there.

Including Nancy Mirando.

There it is.
