“Sheepdog is impressive and important as it thrusts the viewer into matters of his or her own conscience. It is a strong dose of realism inspired by today’s headlines.” – LA Times
Amina and Ryan are both officers on the Cleveland police force. Amina is black, Ryan is white, and they are falling deeply and passionately in love. When an officer-involved shooting roils the department, the cracks in their relationship widen into confusion and self-doubt. At breakneck speed, Amina’s dogged pursuit of the truth may exact a devastating toll on their relationship. Sheepdog is both a riveting mystery and a love story with high stakes and no easy answers. It fearlessly examines police violence, interracial love, and class in the 21st century.
