This is a story woven in a grotesque, absurdity and tragic farce – a look at the world with the eyes of a lamb – that brings forward philosophical thoughts about the meaning of life, loyalty, friendship, love and betrayal. Who are we - people or a dumb bleating herd? How do we treat others and ourselves? What do we place upon a pedestal and what do we worship? The film is about how in our modern evil world, commonly, a phenomenon can be seen when a shepherd who is called to lead his people turns out to be a Judas, a betrayer who is ready to sell for thirty pieces of silver.
