On Achill Island, black faced sheep roam the seaside cliffs, foraging on seaweed and salt sprayed grass. The Calvey family (6 sisters, 2 brothers and the parents) tend to this wild flock, eventually selling this unique product as Achill Island Lamb. This short film tells the story of the women of the island and their long standing history of perseverance through history.
