“A delicately satisfying drama.” – Variety

The first-ever Ethiopian film to be selected for the Cannes Film Festival, Lamb is the sweet tale of Ephraim, an Ethiopian boy, who, after the death of his mother, is sent to live with distant relatives. His only source of solace is his beloved sheep, whom he treats like a dear friend. When his uncle tells him he is going to sacrifice it for a religious feast, Ephraim needs to find a way to save his companion and find his way back home.
