How far would you go to cover up an accident? Could you trust the people around you to lie for you?
SHEEP WITHOUT A SHEPHERD follows Li (Xiao Yang, Detective Chinatown) and his wife A Yu (Tan Zhuo, The Bravest) who run a small business in Thailand and are happy with their two daughters. Their eldest daughter is violently assaulted and blackmailed by another student. When Li and A Yu try to help their daughter, the result is a dead body. The body needs to be hidden and the very existence of the boy needs to be buried to cover up the accident. Nothing can be so simple though; the boy’s parents, a detective, and a mayoral candidate push the local police to stop at nothing to find him.
This film is San Quah’s directorial debut which, according to the press release, “boasts incredible performances and a tense and emotionally riveting story, making it a must-see and compelling new thriller.”
