Trenk is a young serf and he doesn’t want him and his family to live like serfs. That’s what Trenk the farm boy thinks anyway. Trenk wants a better life than his father who has just been hauled off to the castle for another beating by the knight’s men. And so it comes that Trenk, with his little piglet in tow, travels to town to seek his fortune. It turns out to be harder than TRENK thought, and it’s a good thing that he finds friends to help him on the way.
