Qodrat is an isolated young man, already dreaming of his adult life at eleven, brooding over the death of his father. He becomes the subject of vicious gossip as his mother becomes the third wife of a local man who has no interest in his new wife’s child. Retreating to the outskirts of his village, he becomes friends with Sediqa, a fellow outcast. Going against all the strict rules of this remote Afghani hamlet, Qodrat teaches Sediqa how to braid slingshots—something a boy never teaches to a girl, whose only occupation is to become a wife and mother.

Inspired by her remote village in rural central Afghanistan where she grew up, Shahrbanoo Sadat’s Wolf and Sheep was the winner of the Cannes Film Festival Director’s Fortnight top award, and is replete with magical fairies, walking wolves, and brutal realism, making it one of the most memorable films you’ll ever see.
