In remote Western Australia, estranged brothers Colin (Sam Neill) and Les (Michael Caton) are at war. Raising separate flocks of sheep descended from their family's prized bloodline, the two men have been working side-by-side for years and yet are worlds apart.
When Les's prize ram is diagnosed with a rare and lethal illness, authorities are forced to order a purge of every sheep in the valley. While Colin attempts to stealthily outwit the powers that be, Les opts for angry defiance. But can the warring brothers set aside their differences for a chance to reunite their family, save their herd, and bring their community back together?
This charming black comedy-drama is the Australian remake of the 2015 Icelandic film of the same name, and is directed by Jeremy Sims (Last Cab to Darwin).
