Henry! We've got a bolter!
-Henry! Tucker! Go get it!
Get down! Hold him!
Hold him! Hold him!
DOG BARKS Good boy. Get down.
Hold him. That's it.
Good on ya, boy.
Henry had a little lamb, its fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Dudley went,
Henry was sure to go.
Mrs Mac! They're coming down for lunch soon!
Dudley? Where are you, boy?
Dudley. Come out of there, Dudley.
Angus, pull your head in!
It's your father...
There's been an accident.
City boy, eh?
-No. I grew up on a farm.
-Are you all right, my friend?
-Need some fresh air?
-Close it! Close it!
-PHONE RINGS OUT
-'Dr Kerry's office.'
It's Henry Oldfield. I need to speak with her.
-'She's in a session. Can I have her call you?'
Nothing like it, eh?
God's green earth, all creatures great and small.
Here we go.
This isn't gonna be like the salmon farm, is it, Grant?
Hey! Those fish died freely!
-Come on, Possum.
Angus fucking Oldfield!
ENGINE RUMBLES / SHEEP BLEAT
-You'll wait for me, right?
-It's your money.
HE EXHALES DEEPLY
Unless you fancy nostrils in the back of your head, I'd not move.
-Bugger me days!
Don't worry, I haven't shot anyone since Christmas!
Oh, just wait until your brother sees you!
The Merino, the Romney, the Drysdale...
These names are whispered in the winds that caress the rugged hills,
these names are shared in the corners of the farmyard,
and these are the names the young men of the land recite
as they take themselves off at night.
But in the future, they will whisper just one name...
Right, now you take it down and lead it round in front of the guests.
Stop. They can touch it. Slap the flank, feel the wool.
Take the other microphone. Give it anyone else who...
has a question.
Get a prospectus on every seat. Go up the hill and get the animal.
What are you doing here? Lawyers have everything under control.
What am I doing here?
HE SIGHS Our family's been here for over 100 years!
Our father was born here! Mother died giving birth to me here!
This is where I spent the first ten years of my life!
-And my therapist said I should come. HE SNORTS:
-So you're still funny about the sheep?
-It's not about the sheep.
-It's about other issues I need to resolve.
Come inside. I'll cut you a cheque.
-That must be the laboratory.
-WOMAN: Careful! >
-There you go.
Who'd hire her after that thing with the leeches?
-Come and give a hand here.
Yeah, baby, yeah!
Go after him!
They'll never catch us. They're meat eaters.
-OK. What was one, Grant?
-Erm, get in unobserved.
-Right. And what was two?
-Collect visual evidence.
-Get out unobserved?
-Blow this whole fucking game wide open!
And go down in history as the two people with enough balls
to save this country from genetically engineered devastation!
No, Grant. Four was to have a meeting about what to do next.
This is evidence!
Actually, that's probably highly toxic genetic material.
Fucking A. It's mine. It's ours.
You and me, baby, all the way!
Yeah, Grant, about the you and me bit...
I wonder if our relationship isn't kinda...
They're in here somewhere.
There he goes!
Where is he? Bugger!
IT GROWLS, HE SCREAMS
Right, that's for me.
And that's for you.
That'll buy you a lot of therapy.
Well, there's not much round here in the way of your cappuccino culture.
I'm sure Mrs Mac'll do you a cup of tea and an Anzac biscuit.
That's it, then?
You got rid of all Dad's things.
Living in the past, that's what's wrong with these bloody farmers.
You own the biggest farm in the district. What does that make you?
Up here's where the smart farming's done these days.
Is that what all that outside is in aid of?
People are interested in what I'm doing here.
It's a new approach to farming.
Better for the animals, the farmers, the consumer.
It's an exciting time to be in agricultural sciences.
And a profitable one.
More tea, Henry?
I think three's enough.
-I should get going.
-That's a pity. You'll miss my rabbit pie.
I'm making watercress for the Japanese. Look, chopsticks!
-He's quite the lord of the manor now, isn't he?
Angus was throwing this away.
I know your father would've wanted you to have it.
The Golden Shears.
Best shearer in the country,
three years running.
Your father said you were a natural, too.
I-I really can't see it on my coffee table.
You got what you came for, then?
Angus has got his deal.
I guess I'm done here.
I'm having the farm manager take you for a run up to the top.
-But I haven't been up there since the accident.
That's why you're going.
-Oh, here he is now.
-Kia ora, Auntie.
-Flash threads, bro, you a model now or something?
-I'm doing IT.
-Oh, nude modelling.
And you're manager now?
Your brother's hardly Young Farmer of the Year, is he?
Angus seems to think he's got a handle on things.
The only thing he's got a handle on is his...
BEEPS HORN GENTLY
OK, Farm Boy, let's see your stuff.
BREATHES HEAVILY: Sure. OK.
What happened to you, darling?
Give us a hand, bro.
I-I just need to make a phone call.
Jesus! I was gonna shove it back over the fence.
QUIVERS / PANTS
It's OK. It's OK!
I'll protect you!
Will this take long? I've got a taxi waiting.
If you fascists have hurt him,
I'll organise the biggest sit-in this farm has even seen.
Look, we don't know where your friend is.
-Maybe my brother could help.
I should've known you were an Oldfield. I can see it in your aura.
I think that was something he stepped in!
-No! You have a very selfish aura!
-How would you like a taste of what you're dishing out?
-The safety's on.
Just... Yeah, on the other side.
Back a bit. And down.
Back and down. Up.
There we go. Here.
-HE LAUGHS, SHE TUTS
SPORTS GAME PLAY ON TV
SHRIEKS / SCREAMS
..and they were, like, looking around at us...
W-What about me?
Can we give you a ride somewhere?
-Maybe to the car so I can, erm...
-Organise your sit-in?
Wait for my...for Grant.
I'm Henry. This is Tucker. What's your name?
-Has been so far!
Why were you gonna shoot me?
Because this farm subjects innocent animals to sadistic torture,
-Are you coming?
Oh, my God.
The feng shui in this room is terrible!
GASPS / PANTS
SHEEP BLEATS / SNARLS LOUDLY
-Jesus, man! It's not gonna bite!
-What's it doing?
-What is wrong with you?
Ovinophobia, my therapist calls it.
-A completely unfounded and irrational fear
that one day this is gonna happen!
This happens when you run the most reckless
genetic engineering programme in the southern hemisphere!
-Who engineered that?
Come on, then, mutton chops!
BLEATS Shoot it again!
That'll give you something to talk to your therapist about.
I'm gonna be sick!
Rattle your dags, Henry!
There we go. Good girls.
You get Henry, I'll start the car.
God, your chi is a shambles.
Take a deep breath.
HE BREATHES HARD
You need to ground yourself.
You're a tree...
Your tap root extends down into the earth.
-My... My what?
-That's your base chakra.
Feel the energy drawing out of the soil.
Can you feel it?
Come on, Henry.
The energy flows up into your naval chakra,
your solar plexus chakra and to your heart chakra.
It spreads to your branches, your twigs, your leaves.
You are a mighty kauri,
commanding the forest.
Look with your third eye.
-Get on the fucking truck!
-Nearly there, nearly there.
Go! Go, go, go!
-Watch out for the sheep!
SHEEP SNARLS, HE YELLS
What the hell's he doing?
Is it turned on?
-Prime it! Prime it!
-The pump thing?
-Are you OK?
-If it weren't for my gum boot...!
-Jump off! Now!
Wow! What a beautiful view.
-This is, er, where...
This is what?
Ooh, long way down.
I wouldn't want to fall off there.
This is where my father fell to his death.
Sorry...to hear that.
Ooh, a sheep!
Is that a good one or a bad one? SHEEP FARTS
-That's not funny. Animal flatulence is responsible
for almost half the world's greenhouse gas emissions.
-It's pure methane. The Kyoto Protocol...
-What do we do?
-Well, reducing carbon emission from...
No, what we do about raising the alarm?
Is in the truck. Tucker, what do you think?
Hoof it for the house? Tell his lordship what's going on.
-Is it far?
-Rough terrain, open paddocks, hot day, no cover...
-I'd say it's pretty far.
-With about 50,000 sheep in between!
-Then I get as far away from here as I can!
You're still leaving?
I'm especially leaving.
What if the sheep get down there before us?
Then Angus is gonna have some unexpected visitors.
CAB DRIVER SNORES
No sign of 'em. The others have gone out into the paddocks.
You cannot make a cup of tea in this country
without some do-gooder starting a petition to have you do it their way.
Will you help me in the lab? And you, get rid of that stuff.
SNARLING, HE SCREAMS
You and your bloody four-wheel drives! Think you own the road!
I do, actually.
What hole did you crawl out of?
WEKA - The Whole Earth Kollective Aotearoa.
-I know all about your Frankensheep!
Mother Nature spent millions of years making sheep!
She doesn't need your help!
Don't talk to me about nature. Man made sheep what they are today.
I'm making them what they'll be tomorrow.
If I was a sheep, I wouldn't go near you!
If you were a sheep, I'd have you ground up for dog food!
-Now get the fuck off my land.
-They might come from anywhere.
-And they might not. Calm down, bro.
-So, this guy you were looking for, is he your boyfriend?
Yeah, is he your boyfriend?
Grant's part of our collective. We're a non-profit cooperative.
We share information and resources about environmental issues.
-Why were you and your boyfriend here?
-We heard about some cowboy lab
that's flushing every animal research guideline down the toilet.
Scum like Astrid Rush and your brother need to answer to somebody.
For someone who likes animals, you don't like people much.
I would've thought that you would appreciation efforts
to deconstruct the colonialist, paternalistic agrarian hierarchy
that disenfranchises the Tangata Whenua
and erodes the natural resources of Aotearoa!
Learn all that at university, did ya?
-Before you dropped out.
-I didn't drop out, thank you!
I just missed exams while we were occupying a poultry farm.
That's none of your business.
GRUNTS IN PAIN Are you OK?
I don't need rescuing. I need Dettol and a sticking plaster.
Fine. Suit yourself.
Wait. We should stick together.
Tucker, I'm sorry. It's my fault you got bitten.
It'll be O...
-I'll get a tetanus shot.
-But the sheep did that!
Then I'll get the vet to look at it! It'll be fine!
Oh, God! Here they come!
-Don't wait for me!
-I'm not leaving you!
-What about the sheep?
-Fuck the sheep!
-No time for that! Go, go, go!
-Not in there.
-It's been here forever! It's empty!
-No, it's not, bro.
-This is your brother's lab.
DOG BARKS / SHEEP BLEAT
You got a better idea?
Go! Get gone!
Did you know about this?
I just thought they were playing with sperm or something.
Jesus! Are you gonna shoot me if I end up like that?
-Taihoa, Bo Peep!
-What is this?
-I told you. Agricultural science.
This isn't science. The sheep are revolting.
-Hey, hey, hey!
I'll take that as your resignation.
-What would Dad say about this?
-He wouldn't say anything.
He'd have been knee-deep in mud with his hand up a sheep's arse.
He was 10 times the farmer you are!
My father fell off a cliff chasing a wool-blind ewe.
There's something wrong with the sheep. They attacked us.
Nonsense. Your brother's clearly one of these lunatic greenies.
Tucker! Show them your foot.
-I won't allow you to disrupt things.
-What're you gonna do about it, eh?
Whatever I have to.
Angus! Are you nuts?
There's a lot riding on this, Henry. It's going to be very profitable.
-Get out of here! Do something!
-Move your arse!
Henry, come on!
Ugh! What's down there?
SHEEP SNARL / BLEAT
Look at them, Angus!
Look at you. A fifth generation farmer's son
who's scared of a few sheep. You do need therapy.
There's no deal, Angus!
We have a contract, Henry. It's done.
Not with all this going on!
Help me, Angus!
I'm your brother!
That's the thing about farms, Henry...
-Let me go.
Oh, my God!
-Are you OK?
-I'll never be OK ever again!
Aromatherapy for uplift and hormonal balance.
Do your hormones really need balancing?!
Considering I've been attacked by genetically-engineered monsters,
jumped off a moving vehicle, been chased across a paddock,
dragged into a torture chamber, pulled into mounds of rotting flesh,
yes, my hormones need fucking balancing!
SHE BREATHES DEEPLY
-Uplifting at any moment!
-Where are you going?
-There are caves near the woolshed.
If this is part of the same system, we can walk right under the sheep.
All he had to do was leave.
Why wouldn't he do that?
What happened to those idiots I sent to collect you?
What it looks like is the spontaneous cellular transferral
we've been trying to achieve for months!
Or possibly not so spontaneous.
-What's going on?
-Er, nothing. He'll be out for a while.
-Where's your brother and that girl?
-Don't worry. They're gone.
I don't know what they're on about! The sheep?! Really!
There's too many people running around today.
-One of those greenies bit me on my way up the hill.
Looked like he hadn't bathed for months.
Hmm, you might need a shot.
-I want this place secure.
-I have something I need to observe,
-but I'll be down presently.
I need to present my work.
The last thing I need is someone of your reputation prancing around!
My reputation didn't bother you
when you needed someone to kick-start this venture.
Or when you wanted to pursue some... personal interests.
I was coming up with solutions that you hadn't though of.
I'll send someone for the animal. You, lock up and stay out the way!
-What about that shot?
-Put a plaster on it.
I'm sure you'll be fine.
The amount of bad karma your brother's generating,
he'll probably come back as a sheep!
I don't wanna think about what Angus has been doing.
Using your father's legacy as a testing ground for vile experiments.
-What was all that about a deal?
What are you here for today?
I sold him my share of the farm.
I thought if I could come back here and resolve things, I could move on.
But these are your roots.
BAA! THEY GASP
-There's something in here!
-There can't be!
-They'd have to...
BOTH PANT HARD
I have to get out of here!
-No! No way!
-If it's a way out, we're there!
-If it's not, we there forever!
SHEEP BLEAT IN DISTANCE You go first!
Shouldn't be too far. Keep moving.
Look...you're a tree.
Feel your roots in the ground,
-feel your, erm...
-Drawing energy from the ground.
-OK, I feel it.
-There. You're relaxed.
Don't get too relaxed.
GROWLING Go! Go!
-It's only up!
SNARLING, HENRY GRUNTS IN ANGER
SNARLING / GRUNTING THROUGHOUT
I was wrong about your aura.
-I said it was selfish, but...
now I think it was something you stepped in.
LAUGHS SOFTLY: This way.
Address To A Haggis...
Fair fa' your honest, Sonsie face,
Great chieftain o' the pudding-race!
Aboon them a' yet tak your place,
-Painch, tripe, or thairm...
-Oh, hello, dear.
-Did you see Henry up the hill?
Er, no. No. I think he's gone.
Oh? Really? I thought he would've at least said goodbye.
Well, you can't tell what Henry will do.
Can you? Hmm!
QUIVERS: It's all his bloody fault.
He had his money, good money. My money.
This is how I remember it.
We better hurry.
What's that noise?
Oh, God, no!
What's happened to you?
-Grant, it's me - Experience.
Hey! SHEARS BUZZ
This way! Come on!
Grant, what's that on your face?
-Is that blood?
Have you been eating meat, Grant?
Was it even organic?
BANGS ON GATE
So, that's your boyfriend?
-I knew you liked animals, but...
-He's not my boyfriend!
Something must've have bitten him.
The amniotic fluid should work as an attenuated vaccine
on the mutated cells.
What's going on?
-Tell me how you feel.
-Sore, itchy, my...my skin feels really tight.
Go on. HE YELLS
No, no, no, no! No, wait.
Oh, hello. Thanks for coming.
Ah! We're about to kick off.
There's my girl.
IT GROWLS, HE SCREAMS
Angus won't be selling many sheep if he turns into one.
He might need that shot after all.
You're a very lucky young man,
to be witness to a new scientific frontier.
I have a small errand to attend to, and then...
..I think we'll replicate the effect on you with some of these cultures.
In the meantime...
..you rest up.
TAPS ON MIC
Konichiwa. Guten Tag. Kia ora. G'day.
This land was carved from virgin bush
by my great-great grandfather more than...
..100 years ago.
My family have sowed their seed here since that time.
I have a dream...for the future.
-A dream of sheep.
SEVERAL SHEEP BLEAT
The Merino, the Romney,
It's not far. It's just a quick trip through the trees.
BLEATING COMES FROM ALL ANGLES
-These names are shared in corners of the farm...
-These names are names...
Well, time to meet the star of our show, I suppose.
I give you...the Oldfield.
SPEAKS SOFTLY TO SELF
Quiet now. Quiet, my pretty.
Perhaps it won't be that bad.
Easy! Easy! Easy!
Lo, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb and with him 144,000.
MAN SHOUTS FRANTICALLY
MAN SHOUTS IN JAPANESE
-But I'm a vegetarian!
SHOUTS IN GERMAN
It is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes,
for they are spotless.
-Help me! Help me!
BOTH SHOUT IN GERMAN
Take me up, Lord. Take me...
Henry! Just in time for dinner!
Oh, my Lord! MAN SCREAMS
It's OK. It's OK.
It's OK. It's OK. It's OK.
There. I know. It's OK.
-Let's make that phone call.
-I think MAF. Then WEKA. Or WEKA then MAF.
Someone must have one of the other phones off the hook.
Who else is...? SNARLING
-Your boyfriend's back.
-My shotgun's in the pantry.
Many's the meal I've made of wethers like you.
-You don't scare me.
What is that?!
-IT GOBBLES GREEDILY
GROWLS IN PAIN
-What did you do?
-Ling Gui Ba Fa.
-Acupuncture point. Causes temporary paralysis.
Or coma if I did it wrong.
-He fell down, didn't he?
RUMBLE OF HOOVES / SHEEP BLEAT
SHEEP BLEAT OUTSIDE
FURNITURE SCRAPES ALONG FLOOR
-Just make that call.
-Where's the other phone?
-Er, Angus's study.
-Here we are.
I pulled it from the wall.
-I thought I'd keep a lid on things till it all blows over.
Business community don't receive this very well.
They probably won't receive being eaten very well either...
What are you doing in here?!
You wouldn't understand.
I understand you've got a pretty fucked-up idea of animal husbandry!
-I'm taking back the farm.
Golden boy thinks he can do better, does he?
-You wouldn't know where to start.
I couldn't do any worse than you.
It's one of us.
That's how we made the advances. Human DNA.
Well, it's more of a sperm sample, really.
Necessity is the mother of invention.
You've been bitten.
It's nothing. Just some hippy.
You've become one of them.
-No, Angus. One of them. Only worse.
What are you gonna do, Henry? Kill me?
I'm your brother.
-They're almost in!
The sheep are breaking in. They'll tear you to pieces.
Oh, I don't think so.
-Henry! Come on, now!
There's another fire escape around the back.
We can take Mrs Mac's car to town.
-Where does he think he's going?!
He can't leave if he's contaminated. It could affect the whole country.
You're hurt, dear.
-We don't know what will happen.
-We've seen what happens!
You're a tree...
-I'm not a tree! I'm a fucking sheep!
-No. You're a man.
And your father'd be proud of you.
-You two go. I'm staying here.
-What are you gonna do?
I'm gonna stop Angus.
-If you see me again, you might have to...
I still smell, right?
No, that's just your aura.
How will you get across the lawn? They'll tear you to bits.
I'll blend in.
I am a sheep. I am a sheep.
GRUNTING, HENRY GASPS
I AM a sheep.
Wait. You go to town.
Show me how to use this and I'll stay here.
-Have you ever fired a gun before, dear?
Not as such.
Aim and squeeze, dear. That's all there is to it.
I'll talk you through it.
This hurts me more than it hurts you.
-We'll make a farm girl outta you yet!
GUNSHOTS IN THE DISTANCE
Come on, darling.
GRUNTS IN PAIN
CRUNCH OF RIPPING FLESH
FLESH TEARS / SCREAMS
SCREAMS: Stop! Angus!
We could've run the farm together! If you hadn't ruined everything!
SCREAMS: It has to end!
DOG BARKS IN DISTANCE
Speak up. Hold him, boy.
Hold him. Hold him, boy!
Get down. Get down! DOG BARKS
Hold him, boy.
CAR HORN BEEPS
Tucker. You're OK.
-What is that?!
-Just a little something I picked up in the lab!
Should clear up your wounds. Fix your fly strike, too!
Anyway, pull your finger out! We've got work to do!
-Hold 'em. Hold 'em. Good dog.
-How much of that stuff is there?
-Not enough for all of them.
Angus. It's over.
No. This is just the beginning.
Come back! SHEEP BLEAT
Have me again!
WAILS IN AGONY
CONTINUES TO SCREAM
Get in behind!
-There's a nice bit of wool on that, actually.
-Reckon we should hang onto him?
-He's a bit toe-y.
-Could make good eating!
This is for you.
What do you reckon, boss?
Nothing but trouble, this modern stuff.
Better just to stick with the way we've always done things.
GRANT WEEPS / HOWLS
Let's see how we go, eh?
-What are they?
Well, I do eat a bit of seafood.
-Mmm! It's good.
-Course it is, dear!
(You know you're eating sheep's balls, don't you?)
Don't waste it!
They'll grow on you! ALL LAUGH
What is happening here?
No, seriously, you could have an organic compost heap.
Or a worm farm!
Comedy horror. An experiment in genetic engineering turns harmless sheep into bloodthirsty killers that terrorise a sprawling New Zealand farm.
