Every year, Swiss farmers embark on an exciting venture—the cattle drive up to the alpine pastures. Every region in Switzerland has its own name for this long tradition. We follow three families who make the journey to their summer residence, and we learn about the stamina needed in relocating their herds for this fascinating and traditional ascent. In Swiss-German with English subtitles. Directed and produced by Thomas Rickenmann.
