The Premise

Shepherd, an ex convict, just released from prison, seeks out his estranged daughter in an attempt to mend their broken relationship. When she denies him and casts him out, he hatches a dangerous scheme to win her affections. When he crosses paths with a wayward drifter in desperate need of help, Shepherd promises to assist the drifter as long as he agrees to Shepherd’s plan, but as the plan gets set in motion we realize that even a well laid plan cannot contend with the choice of someone’s true character.

“Shepherd” is truly about the way we forge and hold the relationships with the ones closest to us, and even when we want to change them, we can’t because of ourselves.

Directors Statement

Shepherd is about examining why the relationships we create in our lives seem to get stuck in a repetitive cycle that we fall in and out of and cannot break. From birth to death, we carry these relationships no matter how toxic or detrimental to us placing us into this infinite loop of sadness and hope. But underneath it all, it is really the hope that drives the relationships. The hope of change, the hope of forget, the hope that in someway the other person can become what we need.
