Black Sheep - The Last Symphony for a Sheep

BLACK SHEEP - THE LAST SYMPHONY FOR A SHEEP is a biblical story of the lone hermit farmer Bjössi living on the outskirt of civilization with his flock of black sheep which were his closest friends and family. One day he received the news he had to cut his flock down because of his illness. This was a devastating blow to him and on the day of reckoning was the hardest he had accounted.

He got his epiphany then and there that this was not what his best friends deserved so he decided that he would honor his mute friend in the manner that would fit their memory. At the same time he applied to the authority´s for a permission to rest by their side. This is the raw and true story of his quest of honorable closure for him and his friends visually articulated by love, death, a farmer and his sheep.
