Description

When his father is felled by a stroke, stoic and lonely young sheep farmer Johnny Saxby (Josh O'Connor) has to take charge of the family's Yorkshire farm. He numbs his daily frustrations with binge drinking and aggressive sex with strangers. But the arrival of Romanian migrant worker Gheorghe (Alec Secareanu), employed for the lambing season, ignites an intense relationship that gives Johnny a new perspective on life, in a story that has been likened to "Brokeback Mountain" and "Yossi & Jagger."
