Baabaa the Sheep Sets Out to Bring Love to the World

This wondrous real-life fairytale documents the rise and fall of a kind-hearted and humble young artist’s creation: a sponge-toy sheep named Baabaa that becomes a veritable craze in Israel. Searching for a warm home for his little sheep, spawned in an artists’ outdoor market, Itamar encounters a mysterious fortuneteller who foresees an incredible future for him overseas. Soon enough, Itamar’s “sheep business” is streamlined by Chinese factories producing Baabaa pajamas, T-shirts, stationery—even a cartoon show! But as business booms, Itamar’s idealistic intentions begin to weigh on his conscience, putting the future of Baabaa up for grabs.
