Szumowska refers to the situation of women, depicted in the film as members of a cult dominated by one man, and compares her metaphor to real life. Also talks about the strength of Raffey Cassidy as an actress and why she chose her for the role.

The Other Lamb: The members of the Flock – all women and female children– live in a rural compound, and are led by one man, known only as Shepherd. Selah, a daughter who is on the cusp of teenage-hood, is given the great honor of participating in the sacred ritual of the birthing of the lambs – upon which they depend for survival – where she has a shocking and otherworldly experience. She begins to have strange visions that make her question her own reality, and everything the Shepherd has taught her and her sisters.
