Sheperds shows how cows are a fundamental part of life and society in Lesotho, a tiny landlocked country in the interior of South Africa. Their value is both symbolic and material, so their possession is crucial. The film was shot in a prison for cattle rustlers. They talk about their lives and why they have come to this point.
