The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C20H18F2N2O2S, contains four independent mol­ecules, two of which are paired into a dimer by way of two N—H⋯S hydrogen bonds. The other two independent mol­ecules are paired into two centrosymmetric dimers via pairs of inter­molecular N—H⋯S hydrogen bonds. In one mol­ecule, the carboxyl­ate O atoms, methyl­ene and methyl groups attached to the benzene ring are disordered between two positions in a 0.908 (3):0.092 (3) ratio. In two of the independent mol­ecules, the F and H atoms of the diflourophenyl ring are flip-flop disordered (i.e. by 180° about the C—C bond axis linking the ring to the rest of the molecule) in a 3:2 ratio. The crystal packing is stabilized by weak inter­molecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
