About the Movie

A year in the life of a British farming family as they try to breed the perfect sheep. In the uplands of the North Eastern England, Tom and Kay Hutchinson set out on a near impossible task: to breed the perfect Swaledale Sheep. They toil through sun, hail, sleet and snow to rear their flock. Life on the fells is by turns idyllic and tough. Surrounded by an ever-changing and stunning landscape, the family battle against the weather, financial challenges and the bizarre propensity of sheep to suddenly drop dead.
