“Plenty of bigger, more grown-up movies could learn a thing or two from its humanity.” – Bilge Ebiri, NEW YORK MAGAZINE/VULTURE
Shaun is a clever, mischievous sheep who lives with his flock on Mossy Bottom Farm under the nominal supervision of The Farmer, and Bitzer, a well-meaning but ineffectual sheepdog. Despite Shaun’s best efforts, life on the farm has fallen into a bit of a rut, and Shaun concocts a cunning plan to have a day off. However, his plans backfire and events rapidly escalate out of control, with the mischief inadvertently leading to the hapless Farmer being taken away. With the flock’s help, Shaun must leave the farm for the first time and travel into the Big City in order to rescue his owner… and failure is not an option.
