Synopsis

An idyllic picture: Stijn, one of the last remaining Dutch shepherds working in the traditional way, leads through the heathland his flock of sheep. But nowadays, little remains of the romance and peace that we associate with the centuries-old tradition of sheepherding.
A traditional shepherd is forced to innovate in a neo-liberal world that conflicts with his idealistic views. Shepherd Stijn has chosen to live as a free man, supporting his family in an honest and sustainable way. Or so he thought. But modern neoliberal life has its demands and grinds him down bit by bit. What is left of his freedom, when he’s constantly fighting to protect it? Is there a solution?
