SYNOPSIS

Totally off the grid with only their dogs as companions, Hollyn and Colie brave inclement weather and perilous work conditions while pondering their futures as range riders. A portrait of friendship, life transitions, and the work of two skilled young women in the isolated and beautiful landscape of the American West, this is an intimate portrayal of a way of life rarely seen on film. 

NOTE

[Jinna Lee, Programmer​]

We can delve into the subtle relationships of coworkers-to-friends or dip ourselves in the beautiful sound of Bach. There are no big events, but touching moments are found in the conversations. And the American West's scenery is an additional layer of delight.
