A father offers his seven-year-old boy to a shepherd as a helper, in exchange for food and other goods. The child is nameless, deprived of any form of identity, and reduced to a sheer commodity – merely a part of a brutal bargain. On his first day of work, the boy loses a sheep and is fiercely beaten by the shepherd. After a white night spent in the barn that serves as a bedroom, the boy goes out on a desperate search for the missing sheep. A harsh and unrefined coming-of-age story set in present-day Romania.
