The Tribe (Ukrainian: Плем''я, Plemya) is a 2014 Ukrainian drama film directed by Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy. Starring Hryhoriy Fesenko, Yana Novikova and Roza Babiy, the film is set in a boarding school for deaf children, where a new arrival is drawn into an institutional system of organised crime, involving robbery and prostitution. He crosses a dangerous line when he falls for one of the girls to whom he''s assigned to pimp. The film is entirely in Ukrainian Sign Language with no subtitles. It won the Nespresso Grand Prize, as well as the France 4 Visionary Award and the Gan Foundation Support for Distribution Award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival''s International Critics'' Week section.

Harmata Film Production with the support of Hubert Bals Fund, Ukrainian State Film Agency, Rinat Akhmetov Foundation For Development of Ukraine co-financed the film. Cinematographer and editor Valentyn Vasyanovych shot the film in 1:2.39 aspect ratio and on 35mm film. Filming commenced in early 2013 in Kyiv.

The Tribe was widely admired and considered a contender for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards. There was some controversy over the voting process after The Guide was nominated by Ukraine.

Storyline
A deaf teenager enters a specialized boarding school where, to survive, he becomes part of a wild organization - the tribe. His love for one of the concubines will unwillingly lead him to break all the unwritten rules within the Tribe''s hierarchy.

Plot
A young shy boy, Sergey, arrives at a boarding school for the deaf. There he tries to find his place in the hierarchy of the school community, which operates like a Mafiosi group ruled by the King. When one of the boys who helps in pimping two girls from the school gets crushed by a truck, Sergey takes his place. Soon however, he falls in love with one of the girls, Anna. Anna becomes pregnant, and uses the money she receives from Sergey to undergo an abortion. One of the gangmasters prepare to send the two girls to Italy, but Sergey finds Anna''s passport and tears it up. King and his men beat up Sergey and smash a bottle on his head. Sergey returns to their rooms later at night and crushes their heads in with the chest of drawers by their bedside.
