It's not economically rewarding to be a farmer in Norway today. And because of this, there aren't many full time working farmers left. This is a close and truthful portrait of a stubborn and special man in his sixties who refuses to quit being a sheep-farmer, even though his bookkeeper told him to. That’s why Uncle Joh still has a farm. We follow him and his wife Gerd in their life on the sheep farm from April to September, and get a glimpse into their everyday life, a lifestyle not many people appreciate anymore. This is not a serious sheep-movie, it only contains one lambing.
