There’s snow on the ground and shepherds Carole and Pascal are heading through French-speaking Switzerland with three donkeys, four dogs and 800 sheep. Skirting main roads, railway tracks, suburban houses, and industrial estates, moving over fields and through forests.

Our take

We follow two modern-day shepherds herding their flocks through the snowy landscapes of Switzerland in this blissful and bucolic vérité work. A quiet sense of contemplation prevails as we learn of ancient customs, pursue the rhythms of the path, and share in their irresistible spirit of adventure.
