to be bred in different parts of the world for the next ten years until they are ready to eat

She promises to everyone that the pigs are non-genetically modified organism

and are eco-friendly in an effort to bring goodwill toward her company

Ten years later in South Korea

a girl named Mija is living with her grandfather and her pet super pig, Okja

Mija and Okja go around their home together to gather fish for supper

At one point

Mija tries to get Okja to cross a thin path, leading her to fall while holding onto a rope attached to Okja

Okja struggles to pull Mija back up

She runs toward a tree with Mija still hanging on

so that Okja may jump over and pull Mija up

Okja falls down into the forest, but Mija finds her in fine condition

The next day, a man named Mundo guides Dr. Johnny and his crew

to Mija’s home where it is at the top of the hill so they can find Okja

He complains about the long walk up the hill

and Dr. Johnny sees Okja and is amazed at how she looks

the grandfather brings Mija to the graves of her parents

He presents her with a solid gold pig statue that he purchased as he was unable to buy Okja

Mija becomes enraged when she learns that Okja is being taken back to the Mirando facility in Seoul

Against her grandfather’s orders, Mija grabs whatever money she can and heads to rescue Okja

Mija finds the Mirando facility and manages to break into the place by body-slamming against the glass door

She spots Okja being hauled into a truck and she rushes to save her

Mija runs after the truck through the streets until she reaches it

She hops onto the back and latches on

Another truck with masked people inside drive alongside the Mirando truck and order them to stop the truck

Once they ride under a tunnel, the second truck slams into the Mirando truck and forces them to stop

The masked people hijack the truck to break Okja out

They are activists from the Animal Liberation Front, led by Jay, with his cohorts K, Red, Blond, and Silver

Mundo and the officers chase after the truck, but they are taken out by a bag of marbles and Okja shooting poo at them

Jay introduces himself to Mija with K translating for her

Jay explains the Animal Liberation Front goal to protect animals from slaughter and expose the corporations exploiting them

He also tells Mija what the Mirando Corporation is really doing

They have been breeding other super pigs like Okja with the intent of distributing their flesh and organs for food

The Animal Liberation Front plan to have Okja go into the Mirando laboratories

to expose the cruel conditions that the super pigs are subjected to

by a camera being placed under Okja’s ear

Jay asks Mija for her consent in letting their plan go ahead

Mija wants to bring Okja back to the mountains, but K translates that she agrees to the mission

In New York, Lucy and her crew view viral footage of Okja and Mija running through Seoul

Lucy fears that this will bring backlash to her company since there are images of Mirando associates forcefully carrying Mija away

Lucy’s associate Frank Dawson helps her come up with an idea to have Mija and Okja reunited in New York City to bring back good publicity

Dr. Johnny becomes upset when Lucy says she wants to make Mija the new face of the Mirando Corporation

She dismisses his complaints and has her team do damage control

A drunken Johnny goes into the lab and forces another super pig named Alphonso to mate with Okja

The Animal Liberation Front watches through Okja’s camera with horror as Johnny abuses the super pigs

They feel instant regret for sending Okja in there

K then admits that he lied about Mija letting them go through with their mission because he felt the mission needed to proceed as planned

Jay then starts viciously kicking and beating K for his deception, and he bans him from the Animal Liberation Front

Meanwhile, Johnny starts angrily ranting to Okja about how Lucy humiliated him before extracting some of her meat

The meat is later tested by special tasters who declare it’s the best meat they’ve ever tried

Lucy’s team preps Mija for her big reunion with Okja

Mija doesn’t want to go through with everything that they have planned for her, but Lucy’s assistant Jennifer shows Mija the kind of food Okja will become if Mija doesn’t follow through

Mija goes to her room to find Jay there telling her not to look back during the big event, and that they will rescue Okja

A parade is held in the city streets in honor of Okja being crowned the best super pig

The Animal Liberation Front is in disguise as civilians and participants to carry out their plan

Super pig meat is also being given out in the streets

Johnny goes onstage to bring Lucy out for her to introduce Okja and Mija

The Animal Liberation Front then hack the screen to show the video of Johnny abusing Okja and other horrifying images

The crowd turns against Lucy and Johnny while Jay helps Mija getaway

A response team, Black Chalk, then arrives to beat up the Animal Liberation Front

Nancy Mirando steps in to clean up after Lucy

but Nancy tells Frank about her plan to fix things for the public and to continue her distribution plan without a hitch, albeit at a reduced price for the meat

K picks up Mija and Jay to rescue Okja for good in an attempt at redemption

They head to a plant where all the super pigs are being held for slaughter

The super pigs are being cattle-prodded as they are led to their fates

Mija desperately tries to rush to Okja

She makes it to the lab where the super pigs are killed and chopped up

Mija finds Okja being placed on the device that holds the super pigs down as they are executed

Before Okja is killed, Nancy comes to the lab with Frank and the other scientists

Jay and K are taken away by security guards

Mija pleads with Nancy to let her take Okja home, but she refuses

but Mija then gives Nancy the golden pig from her grandfather to buy Okja

and Nancy agrees and lets Okja go

On their way out of the plant, Okja and Mija pass the other doomed super pigs

Two adult super pigs then push their piglet over the fence so that it can get away

Okja hides the piglet in her mouth to avoid detection

Mija and Okja return to the mountains to be with her grandfather and the piglet, resuming their lives together in peace.
