WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
In the remote countryside of Western Australia, Colin (Neill) and Les (Caton) are two estranged brothers who are raising their own herds of sheep, each descended from their family’s prized bloodline. When Les’s prized ram is diagnosed with a fatal illness, the authorities call for a purge of every sheep in the valley, and with nowhere else to turn Les calls upon Colin to help him save their herds, and in the process reunite as brothers…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
This Australian remake of the 2015 Icelandic film of the same name is filled with irreverent comedy, family drama, and enough sheep to last a lifetime.
