On the Other Side of the Fence

In two worlds that appear to be vastly different, a friendship occurs between Ham and Bacon, pigs who live on two sides of the fence between two barnyards. A long-standing feud between Franklin and Fred, farmers who live on neighboring/opposing farms, has prevented the animals on both sides from communicating with one another. Despite this obstacle, Ham and Bacon and all of the animals express how they feel about the situation and look for peaceful solutions.
