Transhumance is a short documentary telling the story of a 2000 year old tradition, in the Cevennes, South of France. The film follows the story of husband and wife, Jean Paul and Lucette, and the small shepherd community, on their yearly trek from lowlands, up through the mountains. This film captures the highs, lows and adventures that happen each summer during the migration of nearly 2000 bell-clad and decorated sheep. However, can such an old colourful tradition continue?
