Rob is a former Portland-based chef turned reclusive and asocial truffle forager. Living alone in a cabin deep in the Oregon forests, he hunts for truffles with the help of his prized foraging pig. He sells the truffles to Amir, a young and inexperienced supplier of luxury ingredients to high-end restaurants. After Rob gets assaulted one night, he must return to his past in Portland in search of his beloved pig after she is kidnapped. R, 92 min.
