Told in the cinematic tradition of classic westerns, this documentary trailer offers the opportunity to ride alongside modern working cowboys on some of America's largest and most remote cattle ranches. COWBOYS (coming early 2019) documents the lives of the men and women working on "big outfit" cattle ranches - some of which are over one million acres - and still require a crew of horseback workers to tend large herds of cattle.
Narrated through first-hand accounts from the cowboys themselves, the story is steeped in authenticity and explores the rewards and hardships of a celebrated but misunderstood way of life and the challenges that lie ahead for the cowboys and ranches critical to providing the world's supply of beef.
