79-year-old Britt Georgsson has devoted her entire life to cows. She’s been tending them since the age of four and, despite health problems, she has no intention of abandoning her strenuous work caring for her twelve pets on the rundown family farm. At night she dreams about her cows and does the mucking out even though a debilitating back injury means she has to walk with a pronounced stoop. Her sister Ingrid can’t stand the cows but grudgingly helps Britt to look after the bovine family inheritance.
