Every autumn, shepherds from Transylvania set off with their flocks in search of green grass. They follow an ancient route which takes them hundreds of miles away from home. During his journey, the master of a flock is murdered in a forest. His youngest son must take over one thousand sheep, five donkeys, seven dogs and four hired shepherds. Sleeping in the open, marching through villages and fields, fighting bad weather and truck drivers’ prejudice, he learns to be a master.

"On the Road" gives an intimate insider view of Transylvanian shepherd life. I highly recommend this film for anyone concerned with interactions of traditional life and modern commerce.

An essential moment in the development of film-making in Romania, the best Romanian documentary I have seen.
