Film about shepherds from Vlašić Mountain and their life during long winter months. Far away from the cities, in the snow-covered mountain, these men struggle to protect and feed their sheep. In the spring, when first lambs are born, they take their flocks into the lowland to feed on fresh grass and herbs. For days they travel through piles of snow, on wet, muddy roads, moving from one village to another to reach their final destinations. They stay in the tame valleys until May, allowing their herds to rejuvenate and reproduce. Once their flocks double in size, they take them back to the rich mountain pastures in Vlašić.
