We are inside a very peculiar community. A man, known as the Shepherd, and his flock, composed of a group of women of different ages that follow, adore and work for him. Resembling works such as The Handmade’s Tale (Bruce Miller) or The Village (M. Night Shyamalan), the Polish director Malgorzata Szumowska reflects about the rituals separated from civilization, and above all on the logic of the masculine domination over the feminine.
