At a political rally, cricket star turned politician Imran Khan asks the crowd, rhetorically, “What is the meaning of Pakistan?” Cary McClelland and Imran Babur’s sprawling documentary Without Shepherds follows six very different Pakistanis who are defining Pakistan: a model and entrepreneur, a touring musician, a truck driver, a former jihadist, a frontier journalist, and the aforementioned celebrity athlete turned opposition leader. The six are from different regions and backgrounds, but united in their verve to make their homeland a better place.
