Summary:
Samucha lives in the mountains of Tusheti, a tiny region in Georgia on the border with Chechnya. Proud and brave, Samucha looks like an American cowboy. He's a fabulous horse rider, a shepherd, a musician, singer, and storyteller. This year, like every springtime, Samucha migrates with his flock of 2,000 sheep to reach the high plains of the Caucasus, located at an altitude of 4000 meters. But he feels tired and old. After this season, it will finally be time for him to retire. He will spend the summer on the plateau accompanied by his two sons, David and Kwiria, to whom he will hand over his herd. Their time has come to be true Caucasian shepherds like their father and he hopes they will be worthy enough to perpetuate the traditions of their ancestors.
