Behold the Lamb / John Mcllduff
Liz lives in her car, along with her boyfriend Joe and his dog. When his dad suddenly appears, Joe runs off. Liz is left alone with middle-aged Eddie, whom she also has to drive to a village in Northern Ireland so that he can pick up a... sheep. A junkie, Liz wants to visit her son, who is being raised by foster parents, in order to give him his birthday present. On his part, Eddie, a mild-mannered ex-accountant, has to go against his nature in order to save his son. In this bittersweet road movie, the two main characters make a temporary alliance on the way to their redemption. Vulnerable, visibly flawed and traumatized, they both reveal a deep humanism, whose dark roots John MacIlduff carefully accentuates with strokes of humor and hope.
