Russia | 2016 | 79 min.

In a magical faraway land lives a flock of carefree sheep, but their pastoral life is interrupted when a pack of wolves sets up camp in the nearby ravine. While the sheep are trying to figure out how to live side by side with their new neighbors, the wolves are about to choose a successor to their retiring leader. The pack's favorite, but hopeless goofball, Grey takes on the challenge of proving to everyone, including his fiancée Bianca, that he is worthy of being the leader. However, he faces a slight mishap on the way: having taken some magic poison, he ends up in the body of a ... Ram!
