Sixteen year-old rebel Anita’s father is seriously ill and waiting for a marrow transplant. His brother is a compatible donor, but the two haven’t spoken in years. Anita decides to intervene, in a rough and contaminated Sardinia.

“The Lamb is a very well-grounded story, but like our rebellious Anita, it deals with some universal issues: the social and environmental costs of progress, the eternal fight between individual and public interest, the attachment to one’s own roots. Through Anita’s voice, it becomes the sound – or maybe the scream – of a whole community, that deserves to be healthy and to keep its world safe.”
