Mercy, le meilleur petit cochon de la famille Watson, adore les balades en voiture! Au moment de partir, il faut toujours utiliser toutes sortes de manoeuvres pour le convaincre de quitter le siège du conducteur. Lorsque la décapotable prend la route, Mercy se laisse ballotter les oreilles dans le vent. Il aime se chauffer le groin au soleil. Mais un jour, la balade en voiture des Watson prend une tournure inattendue. En manque d'émotions fortes, la voisine originale des Watson, Baby Lincoln, prend place sur le siège arrière de la voiture. Il s'ensuit alors une confusion totale... et c'est bientôt le rayonnant Mercy qui se retrouve au volant!


Mr. and Mrs. Watson’s porcine wonder, Mercy, loves nothing more than a ride in the car. It takes a fair amount of nudging and bribing to get the portly pig out of the driver’s seat, but once the convertible is on the road, Mercy loves the feel of the wind tickling her ears and the sun on her snout. One day, the Watsons’ motoring ritual takes an unexpected turn when their elderly neighbor, Baby Lincoln, pops up in the backseat in hopes of some folly and adventure. In the chaos that ensues, an exuberant Mercy ends up behind the wheel!à
