Director Statement

With this film I tired to take a candid look at the unique lifestyle of two lamb farmers. I tried to not shy away from an honest portrayal of the often brutal reality of working with animals in this way, as well as capturing the natural peacefulness of the island, tucked away in the West Coast of Scotland.
