A story of a young couple secretly raising a half-sheep, half-human child, Lamb fuses typical Icelandic quirkiness with elements of horror.
Icelandic couple María and Ingvar live with their herd of sheep on a beautiful but remote farm. They spend their days caring for the animals and having conversations about tractors, travel and even movies. But their lives are filled with a silent regret about not having had a child. When discovering a mysterious half-sheep, half-human newborn on their farmland, they decide to keep it and raise it as their own. This unexpected prospect of a new family brings them much joy, before ultimately destroying them.
