Summary:
This film documents a migrant worker's experiences as a herder on a Nevada sheep ranch who then returns to his family in Mexico after a long absence to renew ties and find a job at home. It contains an original Mexican corrido song track and a voice over based on John Berger's 'A Seventh Man.' The film contributes towards understanding the often temporal and circular process of migration, and its impact on social networks and familial relations.
