Black Sheep follows two brothers from the North of England and their adolescent curiosity for the EDL - a right-wing street protest movement against radical Islam in Britain. This observational documentary portrays the working class youth culture in the North and the impact that the EDL has on these impressionable young men. Watch Sam and Jack decide for themselves whether this organisation, that some call racist and xenophobic, is a cause worth fighting for.
