synopsis
Without Shepherds is a rare and essential glimpse into six brave lives trapped in the turbulent waters of Pakistan today. In wake of Benazir Bhutto's assassination, in the midst of the first national election in ten years, each of our characters takes their first steps in bold new directions of their own: a cricket star building a new political party, a female journalist working behind Taliban lines, an ex-mujahid seeking redemption, a trucker crossing dangerous territory to feed his family, a supermodel pushing feminism through fashion, and a subversive Sufi rocker using music to heal. Filmed by a team of Americans and Pakistanis over two years, Without Shepherds cuts through alarmist media depictions of the country to celebrate the bravery of its people. It is a portrait of this moment, where Pakistan sits at the center of a deeply broken world, and of those inside the country who are trying to find a way forward for all of us.
