The First Result of Something No one But Me Knows About

Nera Bontinelli left the life she knew behind to save a rainforest in a rapid process of industrialization. They are growing soybeans there. She winds up playing, like a musical instrument, a sneering and judgmental potbelly pig. The pig has a hide dyed strange colors–cerulean, magenta, puke green–and possesses the power to speak. She holds him in a cradle and tweaks each of his nipples, making him squeal in strange patterns. The villagers, impressed with her musical abilities, pledge their allegiance to her. They join hands to take down the large corporation bulldozing the rainforest. Nera did not know, before they successfully sent the bulldozers home, that her motivation for leading the natives in revolt was not earnest moral activityImage but the desire of power.
