Forty-year-old Babou Diop lives with his son Sada, his wife Coumba and a sheep they keep in the house. Nine-year-old Sada develops a very close friendship with the animal. A few days before Tabaski, Babou discovers that not only has his sacrificial sheep disappeared, but so has his son.

In 2017, he co-directed the short film DEM DEM with Christophe Rolin and Marc Recchia, which won the TANIT D’ARGENT at the Carthage Film Festival. He participated in the Ouaga Film Lab 2018 and also benefits from a pre-writing residency with Groupe Quest. LE MOUTON DE SADA is his first feature-length film.
