Selah has lived all her life in a sect consisting of religious female members subservient to its lone male leader called The Shepherd. The women, that Shepherd himself calls the Flock, are divided into his wives and daughters and their position within the sect is defined by the number of children born – of the desired, female, gender. Young Selah is enchanted by The Shepherd’s charisma until she discovers the darkness that has settled within him. She begins to question the leader’s teachings and even her own reality. A basic notion that blind submission to a patriarch is bad news for women, children and probably men as well.
