Manimal freakishness is in plain, matter-of-fact sight in Lamb, a dark Scandi tall tale evoked with stark clarity. Maria and Ingvar toil away on their mist-shrouded farm in almost total solitude, a grieving silence between them long since taken for granted. In the lamb birthing barn, a miracle arrives, and she is named Ada. Ada is adored, though perhaps only these isolated and damaged surrogate parents could accept her for what she is. And as an outsider arrives, we discover the limits of that acceptance...

This film contains scenes of bereavement.
