‘Sheep Will Devour Us’ is about a woman named Tahereh, who is a victim of very young age marriage.
She, who has suffered the aftermath of such a tradition, is trying hard to avoid such a destiny for her younger sister.
The film has already been screened at a number of global events, including the Heritage film festival in the US, the Barcelona Human Rights Film Festival in Spain, and the Eastern Europe International Movie Awards in Turkey.
