Irene is an exile, condemned to wander the Earth in a never-ending, desperate search. Her love is poison: merciless and deadly. Anyone who lies with her is doomed to suffer a horrifying fate: their animal instincts take over their whole being until there is no humanity left inside them. The wretched creatures take on the appearance of pigs, with no hope of salvation. But one day, during a cruise, Irene’s desire gets the better of her. She gives in to temptation, despite the difficulty of covering her tracks on a cruise ship. Her latest victim is a public figure, too well-known for his disappearance to go unnoticed, and she soon finds that the pig that he turns into isn’t easy to hide. In fact, one of the ship’s stewards discovers the pig before she can get rid of it. But one mistake leads to another, and Irene just can’t stop herself. She must continue her eternal quest, searching her own character for the only thing that can break the curse.
