Description

In a secluded valley in Iceland, Gummi and Kiddi live side by side, tending to their sheep. Their stock has for generations been considered one of the country’s best. Still, they have not spoken to each other in over 40 years. Their rivalry comes to an unexpected head when a lethal disease suddenly infects one of their flocks, posing a serious threat to their sheep, their community, and their lives. By turns funny and suspenseful, intense and satirical, RAMS is one of the most awarded and talked-about foreign language films of the year and Iceland’s submission for the Academy Awards.
