Pascal, 53, and Carole, 28, are shepherds.

An exceptional adventure is about to begin: they brave the cold and the bad weather day in day out, with a canvas cover and animal skins as their only shelter at night. This saga reveals a tough and exacting profession, requiring constant improvisation and unflinching attention to nature, the animals and the cosmos. An eventful journey with surprise encounters, moving reunions with farmer friends, nostalgic figures of country life that is shrinking away fast. ?n adventure film, a contemporary road movie, a reflection of our current world, which takes us back to our roots and our inner questions.
