In the summer of 2003, a group of shepherds took a herd of sheep one final time through the Beartooth Mountains of Montana, in the extreme northwest of the United States. It was a journey of almost 300 kilometers through expansive green valleys, by fields of snow, and across hazardous, narrow ridges - a journey brimming with challenges. The aging shepherds do their very best to keep the hundreds of sheep together; the panoramic high mountains are teeming with hungry wolves and grizzly bears. Written by

I grew up not far from Big Timber, Montana and the wilderness area where the film was shot is my favorite place on earth. I also love documentaries. With that said, I was surprised I did not like this film at all. I gave it two stars because of the scenery. I am in the minority opinion with regards to the "pure art" of this film. I found it extremely dry and boring. With the exception of the excellent scenery and good camera work, the rest of the film truly stinks. I really can't say enough bad things about it. I wish I didn't have to continue writing more details about how bad the film was, but IMDb has a ten line minimum.
