The oppressed animals on Mr. Jones' farm revolt against their human masters and take over the farm. Led by the pigs, they decide to run the farm themselves on egalitarian principles. However, in course of time, a new dominion is formed and the pigs, now corrupt by power, start to rule over the other animals. The story is a timeless and overwhelming satire which is directed towards Stalin. It tells us how power is a never-ending game of greed, corruption, betrayal and hatred.
