    Dragoslava is an ordinary Serbian citizen -- she is a woman like any other in a country that seems to be constantly in transition. A retired teacher, Dragoslava juggles four TV sets, three grandchildren, two best friends and a husband.  She has lived in five countries without ever moving from her flat in a small border town. The media and politics creep into the everyday family life but she reflects about it with humor and determination. For the kids, she invents real life stories instead of fairy tales and keeps her desire to see a future of hope. Through the retelling of her own life, we examine the past and present Serbia, and the changes to come.

    When the Pigs Come acts as a mirror, reflecting the importance of personal commitment and civic activism to change the state of affairs. With tenderness and humor, the Tutorov creates an account, as enthusiastic as it is analytical, of a woman who, without fanfare, has become a heroine of society.
