Pigsy is a street-smart loser who often messes things up. One day, he is chosen to enter the new world to become a symbol of success. He can finally make grandma proud. Soon after, though, everything turns out to be a mistake. Pigsy doesn't want to be treated as a joke anymore. He makes a secret deal with Bull Demon King. He stays in Sanzang’s group and gives the information to Bull Demon King who wants to achieve eternal life. In exchange for information, Bull Demon King promises to show him a secret passage to the new world. Adapted from the classic novel "Journey to the West" as science fiction.

Winter Film Awards is an all-volunteer, minority and women-owned registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2011 in New York City by a group of filmmakers and enthusiasts. Our mission is to promote diversity, bridge the opportunity divide and provide a platform for under-represented artists and a variety of genres, viewpoints and approaches. We believe that only by seeing others’ stories can we understand each other and only via an open door can the underrepresented artist enter the room.
