About the film: Majestically shot in a spectacular, weather-swept valley, this wryly observed fable about two brothers who are more obstinate than the sheep they breed begins as a droll comedy about rural life and grows into a graceful and mythic tale about family, community and legacy.

"Touching, beautiful and poignant. It soars." - Variety

"Deeply seductive in its veracity and subtlety. It engages, intrigues and finally, moves us beyond our expectations." - Urbancinefile

"� A film with heart in every frame. It's a great story about humanity, of brotherhood and of altruism." - Taste of Cinema
