On the day of the Sheep Feast, Ayoub is supposed to help his father slaughter a sheep. But Ayoub is a dreamer who wants to become a professional footballer and does everything to avoid the slaughter ritual. Tensions rise in the Flemish-Moroccan family as the various attempts to slaughter the sheep come to nothing.
In Het Schaap two actors and one actress portray the eleven-year-old Ayoub and a bunch of other characters. Based on Fikry El Azzouzi’s novel Het Schapenfeest.
