THE SHEPHERD
THE SHEPHERD
THE SHEPHERD
THE SHEPHERD

Anselmo lives a simple life as a sheep herder on a remote piece of land with his beloved dog Pillo. When a construction company makes an offer to purchase the land from him and three of his neighbors to develop a community of new homes complete with shops, bars, and pristine playgrounds, Anselmo refuses to trade in his familiar life for the hefty payout. His reluctance to sell is the only thing standing in the way of his eager neighbors, driven by greed and aching debts that can be soothed by the small fortunes they stand to gain. The neighbors’ attempts to persuade Anselmo begin as civilized conversations but soon shift to more ruthless, dangerous, and hostile tactics. Once a peaceful village of old friends, they are now turning against one another, all for the sake of money. As tensions rise, THE SHEPHERD exposes the grave lengths these men will go to when compelled by their rigid pride. (In Spanish with subtitles) —A.B
