A wild ride from start to finish, High on the Hog is an action-packed grindhouse film with a heart of gold. Tony Wash directs.
Five years in the making, High on the Hog is an example of independent filmmaking perseverance and dedication to the craft. The film was shot in northwest Illinois in 2012. Possessing one of the most unique editing schemes in recent memory, a terrific rapid-fire rock ‘n roll soundtrack, and a crazy, grindhouse feel, High on the Hog plays as a truly unique viewing experience from start to finish.
Big Daddy is the patriarch of an unconventional family that lives in Council Hill, where they work on a hog farm. They may not be related by blood, but they’ll fight to stay together under any circumstance. However, they are not just family, nor are they just simple hog farmers… they are also growers of high quality marijuana.
With the pressure of a government agency coming down on pot distributors around the country, the family must do whatever it takes to keep their crop safe. When a new girl is brought into the fold, the family dynamic and Big Daddy’s crop are threatened in a way he’s never had to face before. And he’ll do anything to protect it.
