Synopsis:
A traditional shepherd in the Netherlands is forced to give in to new ways, which clash with his romantic worldview and his modus vivendi. Unfortunately, he finds himself at a crossroads between two options: compromise or perish. A documentary that observes, in the course of a decade, how a sworn denier of the brave new world is being gradually transformed. From a self-confident and relaxed man into a stressful entrepreneur obsessing over his survival.
