When Teresa Tamworth gives birth to only one female piglet in her litter, it causes a sensation among the animals at the Rare Breeds Survival Centre. Young Triffic's independent and boisterous ways soon arouse the disapproval of the other rare breeds. Not content to stay in her sty, she slips out to explore and befriends Octavius, an elderly cantankerous mule who isn't a rare breed at all! Strangely the antics of this comic pair begin to pull in the crowds and Triffic begins to live up to her name.
